Short description: 

The basic philosophy of the Doctoral School of Animal Science from the beginnings is: Improving the modern animal breeding and animal science based on the classic knowledge with the application of the newest results of joint sciences (molecular genetics, molecular biology, immunology, molecular nutrition, informatics etc.) for producing excellent quality and secure human food and other economical animal products decreasing the environmental load. The PhD students of the Doctoral School of Animal Science do their research work in fields which are of great interest to agrarians working in the agricultural firms and enterprises of the Great Hungarian Plain. R&D work is an essential task of the doctoral school, because in the animal husbandry sector it ranks as one of the most important in the Great Plain region, and has long-established traditions, serving the preservation of traditional breeds. An even more significant factor is the development, working out and dissemination of new scientific results.  Presently, the broadening of the Doctoral School's activities is in progress. The Doctoral School provides the possibility for research and doctoral work in the area of cattle, horse and poultry breeding, game management, genetics and breeding. Doctoral Degree Programmes: Animal production; Nutrition, fish biology; Animal reproduction biology; Genomics; Animal genetics, gene conservation and animal ecology.
