A variety of procedures associated with in vivo and in vitro embryo production, as well as cloning and transgenics, are in current use by both researchers and practitioners. Biohazards associated with these procedures could influence clinical proficiency and the outcome of basic research or result in unusual distribution of pathogens in populations of animals. By their nature, embryo technologies are vulnerable to contamination from numerous sources. Although pathogens can originate in the… CONTINUE READING
