Sex preselection in rabbits: live births from X and Y sperm separated by DNA and cell sorting.
Intact, viable X and Y chromosome-bearing sperm populations of the rabbit were separated according to DNA content with a flow cytometer/cell sorter. Reanalysis for DNA of an aliquot from each sortedExpand

Embryonic Mortality Between 16 and 34 Days Post-Breeding in Cows of Low Fertility
Summary A study was made to determine the percentage of repeat-breeder cows with normal embryos at 16 elapsed days of gestation and the embryonic death rate between 16 and 34 elapsed days. ApparentlyExpand

Investigation of means to improve rates of fertilization in in vitro matured/in vitro fertilized bovine oocytes.
Experiments were conducted with 5,979 oocytes to determine whether detaching some of the cumulus cells from oocytes either before or after maturation would improve the fertilization rate andExpand

Improved yields of bovine blastocysts from in vitro-produced oocytes. II. Media and co-culture cells
Three experiments were conducted with 9,472 oocytes, aspirated from ovaries of slaughtered cows (7,318 cleaved zygotes), to compare some media and co-culture cells for in vitro maturation of oocytesExpand
