1. Genotyping of animal species at loci of some genes of economic interest associated with quantity and quality of some products (milk, meat).
2. Identification and molecular characterization of new allele at loci of the 6 major proteins from milk in Romanian buffalo, Steppe Gray, Carpathian goat breed and their use as genetic markers in selection.
3. Use of genetic polymorphisms of proteins from animal milk as genetic markers to identify authenticity and origin of milk and native milk products. 4. Native sheep genotyping for transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (scrapie) resistance/ susceptibility.
5. Embryos’ sex determination and sex detecting basis on DNA markers from meat/other tissue samples, in litigations’ case.
6. Determination of karyotype for chromosomal mutations’ identification.
