Animal Biotechnology introduces applications of animal biotechnology and implications for the human health and welfare. It begins with an introduction to animal cell cultures and genome sequencing analysis and provides readers with a review of the available cell and molecular tools. The book then delivers in-depth examples of applications in human health and prospects for the future complimented by a discussion of the ethical and safety considerations in the field. Animal biotechnology is a broad field encompassing the polarities of fundamental and applied research including molecular modeling, molecular and quantitative genetics, gene manipulation, development of diagnostics and vaccines and manipulation of tissue or digestion metabolism by growth promoters. Given the tools that are current available and the translational potential for these studies, animal biotechnology has become one of the most essential subjects for those studying life sciences. Highlights latest biomedical applications of genetically modified and cloned animals with a focus on cancer and infectious diseases Provides first-hand accounts of the use of biotechnology tools including molecular markers, stem cells, tissue engineering, ADME, and CAM Assay which are important to pharmaceutical, regenerative medicine, genetics, and disease studies Includes case studies which illustrate safety assessment issues, ethical considerations, and intellectual property rights associated with the translation of animal biotechnology studies
