An understanding of veterinary genetics is crucial to the evaluation and control of diseases and disorders in animals. Fully revised and updated, this second edition not only contains sections on basic genetics, cytogenetics, immunogentics, population genetics and quantitative genetics, but also covers, in greater depth than the previous edition, molecular biology, biotechnology, gene mapping and the use of molecular tools to research inherited disorders.
Accessible and clearly presented, this new edition includes:
Basic, step-by-step explanations.
Detailed descriptions of how veterinary genetics can be applied to artificial selection in animal production.
New information on the control of inherited disorders and the conservation of genetic diversity in both domesticated and wild animal species.
