Molecular genetics and cytogenetics have improved the quality and amount of genetic information available. The process has significantly affected cattle, due to their importance in the economy and culture of many countries for meat and milk. As demands for these goods increase, modern technologies in immunogenetics, cytogenetics, biochemical and molecular genetics create optimistic expectations for the future. This text provides information on research in these areas,and should be of interest to academics and those in the cattle industry.
"Collects essential data concerning cattle genetics and brings together previously disparate areas of research. Early chapters cover the systematics and phylogeny of cattle, domestication, and factorial genetics, followed by chapters on biochemical polymorphism, immunogenetics and disease resistance, genome structure, and gene mapping. Later chapters are devoted to genetics applied to cattle improvement. Standard genetic nomenclature for cattle and cattle breeds is presented. The editors are affiliated with the Technical University of Munich, Germany, and the University of New England, Australia."--SciTech Book News
