Department of Biophysiological Sciences

Work group that has experience accumulated for 40 years in the field of digestive physiology of ruminant and non-ruminant species, feed production through biotechnology, microbiology of the digestive tract.

Mission

Basic necessary research to explain scientifically the new agricultural technologies from this institution and at the same time generate technologies, work methodologies, education and cooperation suitable for the tropics and especially for Cuban conditions.

Non-Ruminants Management and Feeding

The department of feeding and management of monogastric animals was founded in 1965 under the name of Department of poultry and Swine. Since its beginnings, it has had as objective to elaborate technologies applicable to this species to satisfy the needs of the Cuban population, and being applicable in other countries.

Mission

Generate and/or transfer technologies on the feeding and management systems in monogastric animals (pigs, poultry, fish, rabbits and others) that contribute to satisfy the needs of animal protein (meats, eggs and sausages) of the Cuban population.

Genetics Group

This group is suitable to make advanced technologies of genetic improvement more competent to genotypes/species/breeds (rabbit, bovine, buffaloes and goats), besides to capacitate the internal and external personnel, to teach courses of Pre-grade and Post-grade to reach the required quality of research and the application of results.

Mission

Elaborate and transfer Technologies of genetic improvement more adequate to genotypes/species/breeds and the existing production systems by applying quantitative genetics, incorporating the possibilities of Molecular Biology and making use of advanced techniques of computers applied in this branch. At the same time, capacitate the internal and external personnel to attain the quality required in the research and the application of the results, thanks to internal and external research alliances and with the leading productive entities and of support of animal genetics.
