The animal biotechnology program integrates advanced biotechnology with traditional animal sciences. The goal of the animal biotechnology program is to educate, train, and prepare students to become successful leaders in the future of industrial and academic areas of animal science. In order to achieve this goal, teaching and research areas of focus include physiology, genetics, bioinformatics, reproduction, embryology, nutrition, microbiology, comparative immunology and environmental engineering. The laboratories, grouped into three areas representing animal genetic engineering, animal bio-resource engineering, and nutritional and environmental engineering, are conducting high quality researches through active interaction and collaboration among different laboratories.

The programs diversify and expand from the basic knowledge to several core areas of applied science as follows :
1) Animal genetics, reproduction and breeding, to improve animals’ genetic potential
2) Feeds and nutrition to improve animal productivity
3) Animal origin food production, including milk and meat science as well as functional food production
4) Environmental animal science to process animal waste efficiently

In addition, using the newest biotechnology, researchers are actively researching solutions to complex diseases and seeking to improve the quality of life through active collaboration with the medical, engineering, and biological sciences. Our researches are getting strong support from a broad range of industries, and our alumni are actively working in a wide range of private companies and research institutes.
