Our logo: The new logo of the Department of Genetics was approved at the meeting of the board held on 23/10/2023. The update of it goes beyond visual identity, but is part of the process of adapting to the internal and external changes that happen naturally over time. This action is part of the strategic planning towards the celebration of its centenary in 2036. It also aims to transmit the values and main differentials of this department in connection with its history and tradition, maintaining it as a reference center and innovation to expand agribusiness borders ..
