Animal Reproductive Applied Functional Genomics

Describing genetic programming from the very beginning of embryonic life

The goal of the Chair in Animal Reproductive Applied Functional Genomics is to describe the genetic program at the start of embryonic life by combining three different fields that are interrelated:

  • Assisted reproduction technology
  • Genetic engineering technology   
  • Applied functional genomics in embryonic development

Among the activities in functional genomics currently taking place, its impact can be seen in biology, medicine and agriculture.  The Canada Research Chair in Animal Reproductive Applied Functional Genomics aims to:

  • Deepen knowledge on the genome
  • Gain a better understanding of genes
  • Improve our comprehension of reproduction
  • Explore the egg in depth
  • Establish a method of cellular reprogramming
  • Design a genetic improvement process
