Knowledge of metabolic aspects is central to studies in animals of economic interest. This creates a demand on the part of researchers, undergraduate students, and graduate students for laboratories in which methodologies that involve aspects related to technological advances can be implemented, as well as for equipment that allows experimental advances. Concomitantly, the use of rapid, accurate methodologies that allow the research to be refined is extremely important in the quest for scientific advances. Therefore, the objective of this proposal is to equip a multi-user laboratory and create a facility for metabolic studies of animals of economic interest, which will benefit various departments at the Jaboticabal campus of UNESP. This facility will be the first in the state of São Paulo to focus on animals of economic interest and will create opportunities for other local research groups that are interested in deepening their knowledge of the energy metabolism in animals of economic interest. It is of note that the equipment requested is essential to the creation of the laboratory in question. (AU)
