Animal biotechnology is a broad umbrella encompassing the polarities of fundamental and applied research including molecular modelling, molecular and quantitative genetic, gene manipulation, development of diagnostic and vaccine and manipulation of tissue or digestion metabolism by growth promoters. Although animal biotechnology is the broadest sense in not what is new is the level of complexity and precision involved in scientist's current ability to manipulate living organism.
This new book sets out to show that the important ideas in animal biotechnology are exciting and relevant to everyday experience. It represents an important update of the literature for research workers, lecturers and advisers in animal science but also a core text for advanced undergraduate courses in animal science and biotechnology. It will be an essential acquisition for librarians in agriculture and veterinary science.
