In the past decade, significant progress has been made in the field of genetic engineering as it relates to farmed animals. Representatives from leading laboratories worldwide, who are involved in the improvement of agriculturally important mammals, poultry, and fish, have contributed to this body of work. For the first time, current knowledge, methodologies, technical advancements, and successes in applying transgenic technology to a variety of animals important to agriculture have been compiled in one comprehensive resource. This book is an indispensable guide for anyone interested in animal genetics, breeding, and biotechnology.
