Breeding and Genetics Division
Division of Breeding and Genetics (former name is Department of Breeding) was established in 1980s, which is undertaking the animal breeding and genetic researches. The main goal of this division is to accelerate livestock genetic improvement.
- Selecting important economic traits of breeding livestock to strengthen industrial competitiveness
- Locating genetic markers associated with important economic traits in farm animals and applying those markers to the selections in the early stage of farm animals.
- Establishment and application of livestock and poultry breeding databases.
- Germplasm banking of livestock and poultry species
- The Applications of Sexing Semen in Breeding Stock Industry.
- Development of Novel Technology for Conservation and Transportation of Semen Products in Breeding Stocks.
- DNA Barcoding for Pedigree Registered Farm Animals.
- Screening of Meat Quality Gene for Pedigree Registered Breeding Stocks in Livestock and Poultry Breeds.
- Consortium (FABRC): Selection of Meat Quality and High Egg Productive Breeds of Native Chicken.
- Screening and Elimination on Fragmentary Chromatin Sperm from Young Stocks in Breeding Livestock and Poultry.
- Selection of Prolific Gene and High Quality Meat Gene in Heat-Tolerance Boars.
- Innovation Technology For Performance Evaluation and Reproduction of Breeding Stocks in Animal Industry.
- Utilization and Cryo-Banking for Animal Genetic Resources.
