Animal welfare above all
Research on animals at FSAA aims to improve the productivity of livestock as well as the value of their products while ensuring their health and wellbeing. Animal production with a high genetic value, superior quality foods, as well as livestock production practices are at the heart of research that can only be conducted by taking a multidisciplinary approach. To do so, tools for chemical, microbiological, genomic, proteomic, epigenetic and phenomic analysis must be used. Studies on the ethical and regulatory implications raised by spectacular scientific advancements in the fields of agriculture and diet are also topics of concern for FSAA researchers.
