The University of California‚ÄîDavis Department of Animal Science recently acquired two Holstein bull calves that are genetically polled as a result of gene-editing techniques. Researchers at the university plan to
Gene editing shows considerable potential for improving animal health and welfare and food safety while reducing dependence on antimicrobials and other treatments for livestock diseases.
Selecting for individual traits is often discouraged, but an emerging genetic technology could change your mind
Long before humans understood the biology of genetic inheritance, they selected their domestic animals with the most desirable traits for breeding.
Part 3: Animal genetics
A 11-member Gene Editing Task Force comprised of scientists and industry leaders will map out recommendations for regulating the emerging genomic technology in animal agriculture.
