This book contains 15 chapters on biological limits of domestic animals. Topics discuses are: use new genetic technologies and animal breeding methods carefully to avoid problems (introduction); domestication to Dolly and beyond (a brief history of animal modification); good for whom (differences between human and animal enhancement); working equids (the welfare of those worked to their limit); ge...

Chapter 10 (Page no: 140)

Cloning, editing and GMOs for animal enhancement.

This chapter discusses the selective breeding for animal enhancement (using selective breeding to solve welfare issues (the breeding of polled cattle)); genetic engineering and gene editing for animal enhancement (trends in the creation and use of genetically engineered animals, enhancing research animals with genetic engineering and gene editing, xenotransplantation (using GE pigs for human therapeutic benefit), genetically engineered farm animals and righting some farm animal welfare wrongs); animal cloning (cloning of farm animals, de-extinction and conservation of wild species, and new market for cloned companion animals); and public attitudes towards genetic manipulation of livestock, pets and laboratory animals.
