Animal Breeding

Modern Methods In Biotechnology

Although earlier animal breeders had to confine themselves to choosing which of their animals should mate, modern technological advances have altered the face of animal breeding, making it both more selective and more effective. Techniques like genetic engineering, embryo manipulation, artificial insemination, and cloning are becoming more and more refined. Some, like artificial insemination and the manipulation of embryos to produce twins, are now used habitually. Others, such as genetic engineering and cloning, are the subject of intense research and will probably have a great impact on future animal breeding programs.
