Department of Biotechnology
Institute of Farm Animal Genetics
Biotechnology offers many promising perspectives for economical, sustainable, diversified agricultural animal production with improved and guaranteed quality. In the foreground of this work is the development of new applications and uses for agriculturally important animals, deeper understanding of the molecular control mechanisms regulating embryo development, improvement in cloning technology and in the separation of X and Y sperm, and also the biological and molecular genetic analysis of genetic diversity. The multidisciplinary research unit working in this field integrates the most recent discoveries in the fields of embryology, reproduction, cell biology, and the broad spectrum of molecular genetic methodology.
