Animal Reproduction Group

Studying reproduction in farm and wildlife animals
Researching the development and application of assisted reproductive technologies to animal production and conservation.

Our aims

The Animal Reproduction Group University of Sydney (ARGUS) studies both basic and applied aspects of reproduction in farm and wildlife animals. ARGUS is particularly interested in the development and application of assisted reproductive technologies (e.g. AI, IVF, MOET and sperm sexing) to animal production and conservation.

Our research

Our current projects include:

  • Semen preservation, artificial insemination and embryo transfer in sheep
  • In vitro embryo production in pigs
  • Liquid and frozen storage of Asian elephant spermatozoa
  • Comparison of the reproductive performance, lactation and growth of the Inbred Mouse Strains QSi3 and QSi5
  • Methods of sow oestrus detection applicable to industry
  • Validating methods of in vitro semen analysis
  • Development of assisted reproductive technologies in dromedary camels
