Animal science is being transformed by advances in molecular genetics. This book covers this exciting transformation. Both the diagnosis and treatment of disease are discussed in seven chapters by a team of leading international authorities. From oncogenesis and hemophilia to retroviral virulence and genome mapping, this volume yields an understanding of fundamental mechanisms of action and insightful means of diagnosis and treatment. Practicing veterinarians and researchers in animal science will find this book useful.
Graduate students, faculty, and researchers actively engaged in molecular genetic research that employs domestic animal models, veterinarians and veterinary faculty that diagnose and treat genetic diseases of animals, clinical research trials and related research programs.
