Sexing mammalian sperm for production of offspring: the state-of-the-art.

  title={Sexing mammalian sperm for production of offspring: the state-of-the-art.},
  author={Lawrence A. Johnson},
  journal={Animal reproduction science},
Predetermination of sex in livestock offspring is in great demand and is of critical importance to providing for the most efficient production of the world's food supply. With the changes that have taken place in animal agriculture over the past generation the application of sex preselection to production systems becomes increasingly necessary. The current technology is based on the well-known difference in X- and Y-sperm in the amount of DNA present. The method has been validated on the basis… CONTINUE READING
