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… 
Animal Biotechnology Options in Improving Livestock Production in the Horn of Africa
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 and
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.
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.
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.
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.
genetic distance and identification of two indian poultry breed by using dna fingerprinting
TLDR
The usefulness of RAPD Fingerprinting to distinguish within and between two strains of Chicken is demonstrated and the genetic identity index between these two breeds on the basis of BF showed moderate level of GI with the primers.
Heart-type Fatty Acid-binding Protein Is Essential for Efficient Brown Adipose Tissue Fatty Acid Oxidation and Cold Tolerance*
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the heart-type fatty acid-binding protein, FABP3, is essential for cold tolerance and efficient fatty acid oxidation in mouse brown adipose tissue, despite the abundant expression of adipose-type fat-bindingprotein, F ABP4 (also known as aP2).
Antimicrobial activity of various ethanolic plant extracts against pathogenic multi drug resistant Candida spp.
TLDR
The present study may be successful in identifying the plants with different antimicrobial activity and these plants containing various phytochemicals may be exploited in the treatment of infectious diseases caused by drug-resistant microorganisms.
Head and Neck Cancer Stem Cell-Enriched Spheroid Model for Anticancer Compound Screening
TLDR
A CSC-enriched spheroid model suitable for HTS analyses of anti-CSC compounds’ HTS is developed with a simple protocol, a microplate format compatible with multimodal detection systems, and a high detection signal.

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.
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.
