  • Contains the most recent information from leading research laboratories in the areas of developmental and molecular genetics of the chicken
  • Discusses potential applications of emerging technology in basic science and poultry production
  • Presents various techniques for altering genomic DNA, such as microinjection, retroviral vectors, and lipofection
  • Presents genome evaluation using DNA fingerprinting and conventional breeding techniques

Many genes have been cloned from chicken cells, and during the next decade numerous laboratories will be concentrating their resources in developing ways of using these tools. Manipulation of the Avian Genome contains the most recent information from leading research laboratories in the areas of developmental and molecular genetics of the chicken. This information was presented at the Keystone Symposium held at Lake Tahoe in March, 1991. The book discusses potential applications of emerging technology in basic science and poultry production. Various techniques for altering genomic DNA, such as microinjection, retroviral vectors, and lipofection are covered. Genome evaluation using DNA fingerprinting and conventional breeding techniques are presented.
