Biotechnology has taken two directions in efforts to speed up animal production above the rates achievable by selective breeding. Recombinant DNA methods have been used to engineer protein gene products for direct administration to livestock, as in recombinant growth hormone to stimulate lactation in dairy cows or yield faster-growing, leaner carcasses in meat animals. Cloned cellulolytic genes have been inserted into ruminal microorganisms with a view to improving ruminant nutrition. The other… Expand

The techniques of modern biology incorporates molecular cloni ng of genes, gene transfer, genetic manipulation of animal em bryo transfer, genetic manipulation of rumen microbes, chemical andExpand
การผลิั์ี่ิี : จากอดีึัุั Animal Production by Nuclear Transfer Technology : From Past to Present
TLDR
This review concluded not only the nuclear transfer technology in several species using embryonic cells and somatic cells as donor, but also the development of the technique from past to present. Expand
Assisted Reproductive Techniques in Farm Animal - From Artificial Insemination to Nanobiotechnology
TLDR
This chapter constitutes an update of recent developments in the field of assisted reproduction, which includes Artificial insemination, Embryo transfer, in vitro fertilization, embryo cryopreservation, Sexing of semen and embryos, cloning, transgenesis, stem cell technology, embryo genomics, micro and nanotechnology has been included.

The Role and Impacts of Growth Hormones in Maximizing Animal Production- A review
The purpose of the study is to examine the role and impacts of growth hormone in maximizing animal products. Growth hormones are biological stimulants that are found either naturally in the organismExpand
Generation of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Lines from Tibetan Miniature Pig*
TLDR
The successful generation of pluripotent stem cells from fibroblasts isolated from the Tibetan miniature pig using a modified iPS protocol more closely resemble human ESC than cells from other species is reported. Expand
Detection of Genetic Diversity through Two Poultry Breeds by using RAPD-PCR Technique
TLDR
The utility of DNA testing (RAPD-PCR) in detection of genetic diversity through two poultry breeds through Aseel and Brahma breeds is explained. Expand

TLDR
It is hard to claim that the production of such organisms with an increased genetic load does not have ethical implications, because genetic modification increased the genetic load of the GMO and consequently decreased its adaptability (fitness). Expand
Shallow Genomics, Phylogenetics, and Evolution in the Family Drosophilidae
TLDR
This work uses family Drosophilidae as a model system to study phylogenetics and genome evolution by combining high throughput sequencing methods from the field genomics and standard phylogenetic methodology, and presents preliminary results. Expand
Genotype frequencies in calpastatin (CAST) and callipyge (CLPG) genes in Northeast Bulgarian Merino sheep breed using PCR-RFLP method.
TLDR
Calpastatin locus was found to be polymorphic, whereas in callipyge gene it was observed uniformity – the presence of genotype AA only, whereas genotype NN was not found. Expand
IMPACT OF LYCOPENE OR FOLIC ACID TREATMENT ON SEMEN QUALITY, BLOOD CONSTITUENTS AND FERTILITY OF RABBIT BUCKS
TLDR
Treatment of rabbit bucks with lycopene at a level of 500 mg/l drinking water or as oral administration of 105 mg/buck for 4 weeks prior to natural mating or semen collection could be useful as a strong antioxidant and could have interesting applications in rabbit farms. Expand

Nuclear transplantation in sheep embryos
TLDR
It is shown that fully viable embryos may be obtained by this procedure and its use to investigate the development of embryos in which whole blastomeres from 8- and 16-cell embryos were combined with enucleated or nucleated halves of unfertilized eggs. Expand
Early egg production in genetically blind (rc/rc) chickens in comparison with sighted (Rc+/rc) controls.
TLDR
Factorial experiment results indicated that the performance of the blind chickens was less affected by differences in density and flock size compared with sighted chickens, and other traits measured provided evidence that they were less active, had better feather coverage, and were perhaps under less stress than sighted ones.
