Book Description :

The advent of biotechnology has the potential to develop a variety of novel or better quality products for the treatment of a large number of diseases in livestock. In addition, as we understand more about the reproductive physiology of animals, the potential exists to dramatically increase the productivity of animals through better therapeutics and diagnostics for the control of many infectious diseases. Productivity can also be increased through animal breeding strategies including gene transfer, micromanipulation of embryos and gamete sex selection. As well as being a valuable reference to current knowledge in these areas, this first supplement to Comprehensive Biotechnology also looks at societal concerns over the use of antibiotics and chemical residues in meat and milk products, which are forcing biotechnologists to investigate more natural means of controlling infection by stimulating the animal's own immune system to combat infection. The identification of a variety of cytokines which are involved in regulating immune responses provides opportunities to use the animal's natural defence mechanisms to combat many infections or increase the animal's resistance to such infections. These approaches should provide tools for eventual elimination of specific diseases from counties, regions or whole continents.

Book Description :

In Animals as Biotechnology sociologist Richard Twine places the question of human/animal relations at the heart of sustainability and climate change debates. The book is shaped by the emergence of two contradictory trends within our approach to nonhuman animals: the biotechnological turn in animal sciences, which aims to increase the efficiency and profitability of meat and dairy production; and the emerging field of critical animal studies - mostly in the humanities and social sciences - which works to question the nature of our relations with other animals. The first part of the book focuses on ethics, examining critically the dominant paradigms of bioethics and power relations between human and non-human. The second part considers animal biotechnology and political economy, examining commercialisation and regulation. The final part of the book centres on discussions of sustainability, limits and an examination of the prospects for animal ethics if biotechnology becomes part of the dominant agricultural paradigm. Twine concludes by considering whether growing calls to reduce our consumption of meat/dairy products in the face of climate change threats are in fact complicit with an anthropocentric understanding of sustainability and that what is needed is a more fundamental ethical and political questioning of relations and distinctions between humans, animals and nature.

Book Description :

Biotechnology as any technique that used living organisms to make or modify a product, to improve plants or animals or to develop microorganisms for specific uses. Biotechnology as any technique that used living organisms to make or modify a product, to improve plants or animals or to develop microorganisms for specific uses. Animal biotechnology in use today is based on the science of genetic engineering. Under the umbrella of genetic engineering exist other technologies, such as transgenics and cloning, that also are used in animal biotechnology. Immunology is the study of the immune system and is a very important branch of the medical and biological sciences. The immune system protects us from infection through various lines of defence. If the immune system is not functioning as it should, it can result in disease, such as autoimmunity, allergy and cancer. Immunity is a biological term that describes a state of having sufficient biological defences to avoid infection, disease, or other unwanted biological invasion. Immunity involves both specific and non-specific components. The non-specific components act either as barriers or as eliminators of wide range of pathogens irrespective of antigenic specificity. Other components of the immune system adapt themselves to each new disease encountered and are able to generate pathogen-specific immunity. This book sums up information about Animal Biotechnology and is a valuable tool for students as well as teachers. The aim of this book is to provide the readers materials on the subject in a lucid and readable form so as to enable the research scholars, scientists, zoologist and even the common men to understand the subject properly.

Book Description :

Biotechnology is a highly multidisciplinary subject and has got its foundation in many fields including biology, microbiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, chemistry and chemical and processing engineering. Application of biotechnology in medicine and agriculture has been a recent phenomenon. Modern biotechnological processes now encompass a wide range of new products including antibiotics, recombinant and nucleic acid vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, recombinant therapeutic products like recombinant insulin, growth hormones, prolactin and gene therapy, production of transgenic animals and plants and use of embryo biotechnological methods and stem cells to augment animal production and human therapy, respectively. Animal biotechnology is in its infancy and only during the past ten years, much work has been done in animal biotechnology in few isolated laboratories throughout the world. There is an increasing need to train manpower in animal biotechnology. Even though many colleges are offering courses in Biotechnology for the students, there is no single text book available covering all the aspects of animal biotechnology for the students. This book on Animal Biotechnology has been written to meet out the requirements of both undergraduate and postgraduate students on the subject of biotechnology. There are seventeen chapters in this book covering different aspects of animal biotechnology including enzyme technology, gene therapy, biotechnology in medicine, Intellectual Property Rights and biosafety in biotechnology. Many up-to-date references on most of the topics have been included so that it would be a reference book for postgraduate students studying biotechnology and molecular biology. This would be a useful book for students who are writing competitive examinations for fellowship. With my extensive experience in teaching and research in Animal Biotechnology I have compiled this book to provide students the basic principles of animal biotechnology, current information on different topics of biotechnology, as well as information on Intellectual Property Rights and biosafety guidelines to be adopted in the laboratories.

Book Description :

Animal biotechnology is the use of science and engineering to modify living organisms. The goal is to make products, to improve animals and to develop microorganisms for specific agricultural uses. Animals are used in many ways in biotechnology. Biotechnology provides new tools for improving human health and animal health and welfare and increasing livestock productivity. Biotechnology improves the food we eat - meat, milk and eggs. Biotechnology can improve an animal¿s impact on the environment. The animal biotechnology in use today is built on a long history. Some of the first biotechnology in use includes traditional breeding techniques that date back to 5000 B.C.E. Such techniques include crossing diverse strains of animals to produce greater genetic variety. The offspring from these crosses then are bred selectively to produce the greatest number of desirable traits. For example, female horses have been bred with male donkeys to produce mules, and male horses have been bred with female donkeys to produce hinnies, for use as work animals, for the past 3,000 years. This method continues to be used today. Animal biotechnology in use today is based on the science of genetic engineering. Under the umbrella of genetic engineering exist other technologies, such as transgenic and cloning, that also are used in animal biotechnology. Transgenic is the transferal of a specific gene from one organism to another. Gene splicing is used to introduce one or more genes of an organism into a second organism. This Volume `Animal Biotechnology¿ encompasses all aspects of animal science and biotechnology, including animal genetics and breeding, animal reproduction and physiology, animal nutrition and biochemistry, feed processing and testing, and animal biotechnology. It is designed to introduce research achievements in animal science and technology to the international community, and to strengthen academic field. The topics including advances in animal assisted reproduction, conservation of animal genetic diversity, biotechnology of gut microbiome, nutrigenomics, fodder and feed biotechnology, immunogenetic, genomics and its applications in animals. We hope that a wide variety of scientists, researchers, and others may benefit from this book.

Book Description :

The animal sector in India is poised for a giant leap through technology innovations. This sector also offers a 'virgin' hitherto untapped market for investment opportunities. This treatise is a preliminary but a pioneering attempt towards analyzing the landscape of the veterinary vaccines and diagnostics industry in India. The farm animal, pet and poultry industry form the core of this segment with pigs, cats and equines forming the minor segment. All these sectors work on different ecologies. The livestock and poultry health sector grow as a result of adherence to food safety, disease prevention and productivity improvement principles whereas the companion animal health sectors grows due to affordability and emotional bonding with the owner. With biotechnology traversing all realms of this sector, new generation vaccines and point-of-care diagnostics are poised for active permeation throughout this sector. With the threat of emerging, reemerging and zoonotic diseases looming large, the preparedness to handle them has never been felt this important ever before. In addition to vaccines and diagnostics, information on other related areas such as regulations, biosafety, animal quarantine, economic impact of diseases etc. have also been compiled. All these areas complement the animal industry in this country. This book would be helpful not only to industry but also for the upcoming entrepreneurs, researchers and students who are looking for business opportunities. This book is a must for all scientists in this field and also to those interested in the fields of immunology, biotechnology and vaccine development. This would be a fine addition to a library in all veterinary colleges and other universities.

Book Description :

"Designer Animals is an in-depth study of the debates surrounding the development of animal biotechnology, which is quickly emerging out of the laboratory and into the commercial marketplace. This book innovatively combines expert analysis on the technology's economic, professional, ethical, and religious implications while remaining firmly grounded in the 'real world' political environment in which the issue is played out. Designer Animals uses non-technical language to explore the science behind animalbiotechnology and the ethical frameworks at play in its surrounding debates. By investigating the interests of major stakeholders--including researchers on the cutting edge of science, mainstream and 'alternative' agriculture organizations, the animal welfare movement, and health care providers, patients, and researchers--the contributors illuminate the most important points of agreement and disagreement on this hotly contested topic."--Dust jacket.
