Animal Sciences Research and Education Center

The mission of the Animal Sciences Research and Education Center (ASREC) is to provide animals, facilities, technical assistance and labor to conduct research, provide instruction, and assist in extension educational activities. Research trials vary from basic to applied and involve many disciplines -- nutrition, physiology, behavior, genetics, reproduction, animal health, and product quality. Faculty utilize the Research and Education Center to facilitate teaching several Animal Sciences courses and to help provide hands-on experience for students. Some Extension education activities are held at the center.

Center for Environmental and Regulatory Information Systems

The Center for Environmental and Regulatory Information Systems (CERIS) is a recognized center at Purdue University providing agricultural information resource technologies and applications in the form of searchable databases with web interfaces, collaborative web sites with updating, and dyanmic map resources of pest survey and plant diagnostic data. Since the 1980?s its content has focused on plant export regulations, pest survey data, plant diagnostic data, and pesticides and has collaborated with key federal and state agencies along with industry. A new project under development with Entomology and Plant Pathology is the creation of an iPhone application for ornamental diagnostics.
