The purpose of this course is to provide a comprehensive introduction to genetics and genomics in animal breeding and their use in practice. Vetnomics aims to underpin potential business opportunities for busy professionals, converting new knowledge to practical skills with immediate application.
This course is suitable for practicing vets, their clients, interested farmers, retailers, genomic services providers and breeding companies. The online course is ideal for independent learning professionals who wish to pace themselves.
This short course aims to guide trained vets and professionals working in the livestock industry, through a refresher in basic genetics to the latest developments in genotyping and sequencing, from the importance of phenotyping to the best assessment and management of animals based on their genetic merit.
