Welcome to UMR BOA - HAL Collection

The joint research unit Biology of Birds and Aviculture (BOA) conducts integrated research on the biology of farmed birds, from the molecular level to that of the animal in its environment. Its objective is to generate knowledge in the fields of physiology and genetics that contribute to the development of sustainable poultry systems and quality food. The unit's research is conducted in the context of a transition towards multi-performing rearing and breeding systems, combining resource efficiency and societal expectations in terms of animal health and welfare and product quality. These developments increase the need for research on the adaptation capacities and robustness of animals in diversified farming systems. Our unit has complementary expertise on a shared model, the bird, allowing the development of approaches integrating different levels of regulation (genetic, transcriptomic, epigenetic, protein, metabolic, physiological) and the understanding of interactions between production, adaptation and product quality functions.
