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).
