The mission of the Animal Biosciences and Biotechnology Laboratory (ABBL) is to develop the knowledge and technology to improve the genetic, reproductive and feed efficiency of livestock and poultry by the application of functional genomics and proteomics. Research emphasis includes: identification of genes and their products responsible for nutrient intake and utilization; development of stem cell lines and enhanced nuclear cloning technologies; optimize transgene integration efficiency and fabricate candidate antimicrobial genes; enhance embryo, fetal and neonatal development and survival; improve semen cryobiology and storage techniques and develop alternative strategies for germplasm presevation.
