UMR BDR research focuses on the mechanisms of phenotype development in farmed mammals.
The objective is to study the impact during embryonic and fetal development, culture medium, maternal nutrition, environmental pollutants, and livestock systems, on growth, health and the fertility of the offspring.
This work combines observations and measurements on cells, embryos, fetuses and animals at different ages. They aim at an understanding of the mechanisms involved, by imaging or molecular (epigenetic, metabolic and transcriptomic) analyzes. Research is carried out simultaneously on several species (mouse, rabbit, ruminants) allowing a comparative physiology approach. This work also uses reproductive biotechnologies used in animal husbandry.
