Reproductive Biology Center

Biological and agricultural engineering
The Reproductive Biology Center is home to research that benefits health and fertility of both livestock and humans. Located on 1,200 acres near St. Gabriel, the center has a history of firsts in reproductive technology including producing calves from 40-year-old frozen bovine semen, the first cloned pigs using embryo bisection, and the first domestic cat from nonsurgical embryo transfer. Through research involving transgenic goats, scientists developed a life-saving drug that prevents clotting in heart patients. The Reproductive Biology Center is a unit within the Central Research Station.
