Equine performance during endurance races

Our GWAS revealed that equine performance during endurance races is a complex polygenic trait, and is partially governed by at least five QTL

Endurance horses are able to run at more than 20 km/h for 160 km (in bouts of 30 to 40 km). This level of performance is based on intense aerobic...

Joint INRA-AgroParisTech unit

Understanding and exploiting genetic variability for efficient and sustainable breeding

The scientific research themes at GABI are aimed at improving knowledge of the genetic variability of biological functions and developing the methods and tools for genetic improvement and conservation of animal populations.

An international pole in Animal Genetics

GABI and its research teams constitute a well-built and attractive site for leading innovating programmes, offering training and management.

This joint INRA-AgroParisTech unit is made up of more than 180 scientists, professors, engineers, technicians and students from both organisations, the CEA and other technical and professional organisations and notably the Livestock Breeding Institute (l’Institut de l’Elevage), the French Horse and Riding Institute (l'Institut Français du cheval et de l'équitation), the UNCEIA (an organization working for the breeding industry) and the IFIP (the French pig breeding federation).

Fiels of Competencies

Quantitative and statistical genetics, population genetics, genetic evaluation, bioinformatics, molecular genetics, cell biology, cytogenetics, structure and expression of the genome, microgenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, transgenesis.


GABI is a founding member of Science & Animals Paris Saclay (SAPS)
