Why this course?

Animal breeding can be anything from a serious hobby or part time business (eg. breeding and selling pets), through to a very serious and possibly highly sophisticated profession.

This course provides an excellent starting point whatever level you plan to operate at.

Genetics is an expansive field covered in all biological science disciplines including biochemistry, botany, ecology, zoology, microbiology, molecular biology and medicine. This is how living organisms become what they are, how we differ from one another and from other species. Studying genetics can feel like studying another language – the biological language of genes and DNA. It is expected that you will have some prior biological study to undertake this course.
