The Australian Equine Genetics Research Centre ( AEGRC), formerly the Australian Equine Blood Typing Laboratory, was established in 1986 under a joint agreement between The University of Queensland and the Joint Proprietors of the Australian Stud Book, the Australian Jockey Club Limited and the Victoria Racing Club Limited. Since its inception it has been funded annually through the ASB. In the School of Biomedical Sciences, it became a Centre within the Faculty of Science in 2000. Its primary purpose is the DNA parentage testing of Thoroughbred horses and many other horse breeds. The AEGRC is ISO9001:2008 (Quality Management System) certified.
