The genetic make up of livestock after giving a general overview of biotechnology and animal production this technical theme focuses on the three areas of biotechnology contributing to genetic improvement of livestock ie reproductive biotechnology livestock genomics and marker assisted selection mas and transgenics. The first era of molecular genetics starting in the 1970s the advent of the era of molecular genetics provided new opportunities to enhance breeding programs in livestock by allowing the use of dna markers to identify genes or genomic regions that control traits of interest. Animal is intended to be used as food or to be a producer of recombinant protein for a pharmaceutical or industrial application does recombinant bovine somatotropin rbst make cows genetically engineered one product of genetic engineering that is currently being used in animal agriculture. Determination genetic distance estimation genetic diversity gene mapping and marker assisted selection have been reviewed key words livestock dna markers genetic diversity genome maps qtlsmas introduction the progress in development of molecular markers suggests their potential use for genetic improvement in livestock species.
