Item description for Animal Breeding (Modern Genetics,) by A. E. Clark...
Recent advances in molecular biology have dramatically altered the capabilities and scope of animal breeding, increasing the speed and accuracy with which specific traits can be selected. The processes and products of these new techniques are seen to be controversial and are very much in the public eye. Providing a review of the recent advances and technologies in this rapidly expanding field, this timely publication also investigates the possibilities for future research and development. There are important sections covering manipulation of the embryo, and the mapping and engineering of the genome. Topics discussed range from nuclear transfer to the possibilities and techniques involved in the development of xenotransplantation. The Modern Genetics book series includes a wide range of topics within genetics, including animal, plant, population, evolutionary, and molecular genetics. Individual volumes in the series will cover themes such as yeast artificial chromosomes and the genetics
