Summary This book places Australia's efforts in selected areas of animal biotechnology in the context of research developments occurring internationally. The topics chosen for discussion are relevant for the development of animal production industries into the next century. The book is divided into three sections: genetic technologies; immunological-based technologies; and intensive animal production. It is intended for animal geneticists, agriculturalists and students
