Welcome to GenPhySE

We are a research unit located in the Toulouse Area in France. Our research aims at understanding the genetics and physiological processes underlying livestock phenotypes, including when considering animals in their production systems. Our main activities concentrate around:

  • Improving knowledge on the structure and functional organization of genomes
  • Exploring the genetic variability of complex traits in livestock
  • Understanding biological mechanisms underlying the elaboration of phenotypes
  • Increasing genetic gain through genomic selection and design of new breeding programs
  • Improving our understanding of environmental effects on phenotypes
  • Designing more sustainable livestock production systems

The GenPhySE laboratory is part of the INRA Animal Genetics and Animal Physiology and Livestock Systems Divisions. We are also affiliated to the Toulouse Veterinary School and the Toulouse Graduate School of Life Sciences. We are located near the city of Toulouse, France.
