Advances in Animal Genomics

Advances in Animal Genomics provides an outstanding collectionof integrated strategies involving traditional and modern - omics(structural, functional, comparative and epigenomics) approachesand genomics-assisted breeding methods which animalbiotechnologists can utilize to dissect and decode the molecularand gene regulatory networks involved in the complex quantitativeyield and stress tolerance traits in livestock. Written byinternational experts on animal genomics, this book explores therecent advances in high-throughput, next-generation whole genomeand transcriptome sequencing, array-based genotyping, and modernbioinformatics approaches which have enabled to produce hugegenomic and transcriptomic resources globally on a genome-widescale.This book is an important resource for researchers, students,educators and professionals in agriculture, veterinary andbiotechnology sciences that enables them to solve problemsregarding sustainable development with the help of currentinnovative biotechnologies.Integrates basic and advanced concepts of animal biotechnologyand presents future developmentsDescribes current high-throughput next-generation whole genomeand transcriptome sequencing, array-based genotyping, and modernbioinformatics approaches for sustainable livestock productionIllustrates integrated strategies to dissect and decode themolecular and gene regulatory networks involved in complexquantitative yield and stress tolerance traits in livestockEnsures readers will gain a strong grasp of biotechnology forsustainable livestock production with its well-illustrateddiscussion.
