The theme of the loss of biodiversity in recent years has become increasingly important as highlighted by the United Nations General Assembly which declared the 2011-2020 period as the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity. In this context, the preservation and rational use of autochthonous cattle...

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,...

Vitamin D (cholecalciferol) is essential to humans and animals. Vitamin D3, the form active in poultry, can be synthesized endogenously but, as this process has very low efficiency in this species, vitamin D3 must be supplemented via feed. To become active, vitamin D3 must be hydroxylated twice in...

This paper reviews the feasibility of genetic selection for wool quality. More than 30 papers were studied in the present investigation. The traits which have been considered in the majority of the literature for inclusion in the selection programmes were: (a) wool quality traits (fibre diameter,...
