Teaching methods
Lectures - interactive, with discussion.
Assessment methods
Oral exam composed of two questions: general and specific. General questions aims to check students´ capability to understand and explain a broad topic of animal genetics, from theoretical principles to practical applications. Specific questions check students´ capability to describe and explain a specific problem of animal genetics.
