Equine Guelph Offers Genetics Course

Equine Guelph is offering a new online course in equine genetics. The 12-week course will provide the tools, techniques, and knowledge necessary to develop an understanding of the important role that genetics plays in the equine industry.

Instructor Alicia Skelding is a University of Guelph graduate with a BSc Agr in Animal Science and plans to soon complete a MSc in Animal Breeding and Genetics/Toxicology.

"This online course will not only appeal to industry breeders but people interested in the genetics behind performance, health and breed variability," Skelding said. "This course will provide students with the knowledge base to understand and apply these concepts within the industry."

Equine Genetics is one of the elective courses in the Equine Science Certificate continuing education program and a required course in the Diploma in Equine Studies, both offered by the University of Guelph. The course runs from Jan. 12 to April 5, 2009. For more details visit EquineGuelph.ca.
