SCHOOL OF AGRICULTURAL AND VETERINARY STUDIES – FCAV


PIONEERING

Instructing well-qualified professionals, The School of Agricultural and Veterinary Studies (FCAV) of Unesp, Jaboticabal campus, houses the headquarters of the Brazilian Clone Collection Center – BCC Center, which is the fi rst large gene bank of Latin America, with approximately 75 thousand clones of genes – 61 thousand of sugar cane and the remainder of six microorganisms the genomes of which have already been sequenced or are being sequenced in the Genome Program of the Foundation of Research Support of the State of São Paulo (Fapesp). The unit was the first, across Latin America, to clone a mammal, the female calf Penta, from an adult cell, with the purpose of genetically improving the Nelore breed and deepen the studies of degenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease.

TEACHING

The course of Management values decision-making as a daily activity of an organization. The course of Agronomy provides a solid graduation in botanics, plant systematics and plant physiology of economic interest, use of water and of soil, crop management, pest and disease control, market economy, production and environment, biotechnology and precision agriculture. The course of Biological Sciences emphasizes the areas of biotechnology and environment. As for the course of Veterinary Medicine, it is dedicated to the exercise of medicine in all of its modalities, animal health defense, veterinary public health and applicability of biotechniques in the multiplication of livestock. In the course of Zootechnics, the direct contact with animal raising allows that the undergraduate student works in the areas of animal production and genetic improvement, ethology, nutrition, artifi cial insemination, pasture management, rural facilities, and management of agricultural properties.

COMPLEMENTARY UNITS

Several complementary units work in the campus of Jaboticabal. The Unesp’s Aquaculture Center (Caunesp) integrates professors of different university units. The Veterinary Hospital “Governador Laudo Natel” develops an important support work to teaching activities, research, extension, and specialized veterinary medical service. The Teaching, Research and Production Farm (FEPP) works in the support to the teaching, to the research and to the extension and also to the production of fruit, forest, grain, leguminous, and vegetable plants. The Integrated Pest Management Center (Cemip) has as a basic concern the biological manipulation of ecosystems and the biological control.
