The Rex Citizen Science Project

Rex is welcoming amateur scientists from around the globe to contribute to the better understanding of disease, animal husbandry, and our food supply.

About the Project

At Rex, we are building the world’s largest database of genotypes and phenotypes in livestock and other animals of high commercial value in order to answer fundamental questions about disease and sustainability in the global food supply.

Our project provides students, teachers, and anyone interested in the opportunity to collect real data and contribute to our studies on improving animal health, especially in livestock and agriculture. We hope to partner with various organizations such as 4-H, FFA, and small farms as well as amateur biologists to both develop new disease models and make husbandry more data driven.

If you or someone you know would like to contribute or be a part of the project, then please fill out our form so we can give more information on how to participate!
