Animal reproduction and development entails the study of life processes in cells, organs, and whole animals to enhance efficient production of high-quality animals and animal food products. Students use antibody-based assays, molecular genetics, protein chemistry, embryo and tissue culture, electron chemistry, and other modern laboratory techniques in research in areas of animal reproduction, development and growth, preparing them for positions or graduate programs in the bioscience/biomedical/veterinary/agricultural fields.
