European Master in Animal Breeding and Genetics

EMABG is a joint Master programme that fills a real need for the industry sector and the whole society. It is designed to answer the scientific, practical and societal challenges of animal breeding and genetics.

These challenges can be summarised for both developed and low-income countries as follows :

  • meet the increased demand for animal and fish products, while preserving or improving the quality of the products, the welfare of animals and minimizing the environmental impact ;
  • preserve natural resources, with special attention to biodiversity ;
  • make efficient use of novel tools and technologies to reach these goals while maintaining societal acceptance of animal breeding ;
  • develop sustainable animal breeding programmes that contribute to improved livelihood of farmers and efficient food chains ;
  • develop sustainable breeding programmes that contribute to improved health and welfare of companion animals, including populations in zoos and nature reserves.

It is a common vision of EMABG partners to meet these challenges by intensive cooperation in the education and training of students, further enhanced by the complementarity among participating universities. Thus, the EMABG was set up to :

  • offer quality higher education with a European perspective in the field of animal breeding and genetics, which is attractive to programme and partner country nationals ;
  • enhance the quality of training in animal breeding and genetics and to strengthen attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area ;
  • contribute to needs of societies by developing the qualifications of women and men so they possess the appropriate skills, are open-minded and internationally experienced.

The consortium consists of :

  • University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), Vienna, Austria (coordinator)
  • AgroParisTech and Université Paris-Saclay, Paris, France
  • Wageningen University (WUR), Wageningen, the Netherlands
  • Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Uppsala, Sweden
  • The Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), Aas, Norway
  • University of Göttingen (UGOE), Göttingen, Germany

The EMABG concentrates on the development of scientific expertise in the areas of quantitative, population and molecular genetics related to animal breeding. This involves four study tracks :

  • Breeding programmes in low-income countries (study track WU - BOKU)
  • Biological and societal context of breeding (study track WU – SLU or UGOE - SLU)
  • Genomic selection and precise phenotypes (study track WU – NMBU or UGOE - NMBU)
  • Functional genomics (study track UGOE - AgroParisTech)
