Although genetically engineered livestock were first introduced in the 1980s, only three biomedical applications (ATryn®, Ruconest®, Kanuma®) and one food animal application (AquAdvantage® salmon) have been brought to market. The initial promise of this technology was hampered by low efficiency,...

Giardia are flagellated protozoan parasites of numerous animals. Species of Giardia were originally described based, primarily, on the host from which they were isolated; later, isolates that were morphologically identical with Giardia duodenalis were synonymized with that species. Accumulating...

Metabolomics is a systems biology discipline wherein abundances of endogenous metabolites from biological samples are identified and quantitatively measured across a large range of metabolites and/or a large number of samples. Since all developmental, physiological and 'response to the environment' ...

In the last few years, tremendous resources have become available for genetic researchers. These include extensive software, genomic databases containing genotype and phenotype data, and population reference panels with genotyping and next-generation sequencing data. Navigating these resources can...

Genetic analyses of milk production traits have been based on a polygenic model that assumes that a trait is affected by an infinitesimal number of genes each with a very small effect. An updated review on the genetic parameters (heritabilities and genetic correlations) for milk components...

Most applications of genomic selection (GS) have so far been in animals, especially dairy cattle, although theoretical studies have also been conducted for maize. For the last 50 years, commercial breeding programmes for dairy cattle have been based on the progeny test scheme, which results in an...

Salinity is the major environmental limiting factor of plant growth and productivity. Salt, as well as drought, chilling and extreme temperatures, increases the levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Excessive levels of ROS lead to oxidative damage to cellular molecules, ageing and cell death....

Brassica crops are important sources of edible oil, leafy vegetables and renewable energy. In addition, some Brassica crops inhibit potato pests and have the potential to become cash crops from the potato rotation land for potato growers, if these crops yield well. One effective approach to...
