The Animal Sciences program is offered by Washington State University . Programs are flexible and designed to meet the needs and interests of the student and, as such, specific degree requirements are determined through individual consultation with an advisor and a special committee. The department maintains herds of dairy cattle, beef cattle, and swine for research and teaching purposes.
Graduates from our program are employed in a wide range of careers from applied animal production to teaching and research of molecular mechanisms in domestic and companion animals, as well as humans. Graduate students acquire cutting-edge knowledge and techniques in disciplines that are vital to the improvement of quality of life for animals and humans.
Examples of ongoing fundamental research include: the use of mammalian comparative and functional genomics in the search for genes of economic significance including identification of genes involved in disease resistance as well as production traits; understanding molecular events coordinating the physiology of uterine and testis biology using the mouse and domestic ruminants as model organisms; understanding and enhancing skeletal and cardiac muscle growth and development with stem cell and gene therapy approaches; developing deterministic models to evaluate the environmental impact of dairy and beef production systems; and examination of the bovine genome to examine the genetic x nutrition interactions associated with feed efficiency in beef cattle.
