Transgenic livestock

Simons J. P. , Land R. B.

Summary. Single genes can now be added routinely to the genome of mice by molecular manipulation as simple Mendelian dominants; this complements the normal process of reproduction to give ‘transgenic’ animals. Success in ruminants is limited to a few examples in sheep and although gene expression has yet to be documented, there is every reason to expect that it will be achieved. The application of this technology to livestock improvement depends on...
