The establishment of non-invasive and low-cost reproductive techniques are key interest currently. Although, numerous reproductive techniques have been invented during the last few decades, the procedures adopted require further refinement Artificial insemination is a unique and simple reproductive ...

Traditional genetic selection programmes based on pedigree and performance information have been used to improve livestock populations for decades. The introduction of high-density single nucleotide polymorphism genotyping about 10 years ago supported increased rates of gain through more accurate...

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,...

Prion diseases or transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) are fatal neurodegenerative conditions of humans and various vertebrate species. Scrapie, a naturally occurring prion disease of sheep, is considered to be the prototypic TSE. The transmissible agent responsible for these conditions ...

There have been massive losses of avian genetic material over the past several decades, partly because of a belief that cryoconservation techniques used for mammals do not work for birds. For several avian species, cryopreservation of semen may not be sufficiently efficient to use in commercial...

In 2009, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released guidelines for the commercialization of genetically engineered (GE) farm animals. Numerous applications for approval of transgenic species are currently pending. Anthropocentric concerns raised to date have tended to neglect the impact of...

The breeding of domestic animals has a longstanding and successful history, starting with domestication several thousand years ago. Modern animal breeding strategies, predominantly based on population genetics, artificial insemination (AI) and embryo transfer (ET) technologies led to significant...
