ANSC 4500 - Lab and Companion Animal Reproduction

Fall. 2 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: ANSC 2400 .

J. Allen

This course provides an in-depth study of the reproductive anatomy, physiology, and endocrinology of laboratory and companion animals. Species studied will include the cat, dog, rat, rabbit, chicken, Xenopus, zebrafish, and fruit fly, and students will make comparisons among species. We will examine the application of reproductive technologies to related wildlife species and the use of animal models for understanding reproductive function and dysfunction. The class period will be divided into a 1 hour lecture followed by 1 hour of discussions, group projects, and/or laboratory exercises. Close readings of scientific papers will be emphasized. In addition, students will be exposed to current research performed by CU faculty.
