The domain of animal breeding and genetics has undergone a revolution in the recent decade. The availability of high throughput genomic markers as well as phenotypic data from automated recording systems resulted in dramatic change in the understanding of genetic mechanisms and in the way livestock and aquaculture species are bred. The European Master in Animal Breeding and Genetics (EMABG), a 2-year Master course, responds to a sharply increased demand of industry and academia for people very well skilled in reflecting and dealing with this kind of data.
Four areas of specialisation
Study at 2 of 6 leading European universities that ensure the excellence in teaching and research in animal breeding and genetics.
Specialise in one of four areas:
• Breeding programmes in low-income countries
• Biological and societal context of breeding
• Genomic selection and precise genotypes
• Integrative biology
