The lecture Animal Breeding and Genetics in 2nd and 3rd semester deals with aspects of classical and molecular genetics, population genetics and pathogenetics. We work together with the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Halle.
Genetics in veterinary medicine deals with many questions about animals, e.g. why do our pets look the way they are, where do they come from, what genetic diseases do they have and how can they be diagnosed. Furthermore, kinship relations are clarified, questionable breeding forms are discussed, rules of heredity are discussed and evolutionary processes are examined.
