Chapter 12. Estimating- and biotechnology and disease resistance


Preceding chapter

1. Technology for estimation of breeding value

2. The significance of artificial insemination for estimating breeding values

3. Transgene and transgenic animals

4. Utilization of DNA markers

5. Detection of DNA markers for disease genes or QTL's

6. Results of selection experiments for disease resistance

The present chapter gives a review of the technological conditions, which are relevant in animal breeding around year 2000. Fast technological changes might create entirely new ways of breeding animals.
