100 Years of Animal Genetics

2019 marked 100 years of animal genetics research in Edinburgh (AG100). The Institute celebrated this centenary by showcasing its current research in animal genetics with a programme of public and scientific events throughout Scotland and the north of England.

Specifically, we aimed to use this anniversary to promote conversation and debate about the use of new genetic technologies in animal breeding for health and welfare, responding to questions and listening to comments from the public.

We took our AG100 stand to the following public events:
