GABI's scientific orientations are aimed at understanding and exploiting the genetic variability of animals to analyze the construction of phenotypes, interactions with microbial ecosystems and the wider environment, in an agro-ecological transition context. Among his priorities:
- Refine the knowledge of animal genomes, epigenomes and microbiomes and their interactions.
- Study functions related to adaptation traits, health, welfare, reproduction, and trade-offs of these with production traits.
- Develop tools and methods to promote efficient and sustainable livestock farming
- Characterize and manage animal biodiversity, a source of adaptability for future generations.
Founding member of the Paris Saclay Animal Sciences Institute ( SAPS ), the GABI unit is organized into seven research teams and one platform team.
GABI develops its research with projects in collaboration with various academic partners, companies and organizations of animal sectors. The unit is labeled by the Institut Carnot ( France Future Elevage ) and coordinates the national infrastructure CRB-Anim.
