Outcomes
  • Describe the comparative functional reproductive anatomy and histology across a range of domestic and companion animals, wildlife species, and humans.
  • Describe endocrine organs and tissues and relate their developmental and functional influence on reproductive structure and function.
  • Explain the developmental, structural, and physiological changes in male and female germ cells required for gamete transport, fertilization, and early embryo development.
  • Evaluate the basis for reproductive technologies and their potential impact on genetic improvement, reproductive efficiency, and species conservation.
  • Explain fundamental cryobiological principles as they relate to cryopreservation of gametes, embryos, and somatic tissues for subsequent use in a broad range of reproductive technologies.
  • Compare species differences in placental development and function and relate differences to support of embryo and fetal development and mechanisms of parturition.
