EGS-ABG: European Graduate School in Animal Breeding and Genetics.

The PhD projects listed below are scheduled to start in September 2015.

In the below list, the first number indicates a simple rank of receipt and the two acronyms refer to the two institutions jointly supervising the project:

 APT = AgroParisTech (France)
 AU = Aarhus University (Denmark)
 SLU = Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (Sweden)
 WU = Wageningen University (The Netherlands)
