By Harinder P.S. Makkar, Gerrit J. Viljoen

Sleek Biotechnology has strength for fixing many difficulties linked to animal productiveness and future health and provides fascinating possibilities for boosting agricultural productiveness. at the present the focal point is, although, at the matters and difficulties of importance for cattle manufacturers within the constructed international. which will absolutely notice some great benefits of this expertise in constructing international locations, there's a have to establish, represent and follow applicable gene-based applied sciences for those areas. those court cases current peer reviewed cutting-edge papers describing the achievements within the parts of animal breeding and genetics, animal nutrients, animal wellbeing and fitness, and atmosphere, ethics, security, and regulatory points of gene-based applied sciences; achievements which may be learned utilizing those smooth medical instruments to maximize the advantages from the 'livestock revolution' that's happening; and the restrictions within the use of gene-based applied sciences and their particular study wishes. This ebook may also help in bridging the broad hole among built and constructing nations, within the improvement and use of gene-based applied sciences, and to explain the present and destiny roles of such applied sciences within the constructing international. it's a strong reference resource for researchers, scholars and policy-makers alike.

Example text

Developing countries will be able to engage in this gene-based technology through bio-informatics studies, since sequence information will be publicly available and accessible to developing country scientists. However, scientists from developing countries currently are not skilled in this rapidly expanding area of biology. Practical application of information from such research is currently unclear but could involve industrial production of key lignocellulytic enzymes for pre-treatment of fibrous residues.

Similarly, optimizing nutrient–gene interactions for production traits must take into account which forages are likely to produce these benefits after they have been digested by gut micro-organisms, and nutrients absorbed by the animal. 1 Forage nutrient supply The paper in this component demonstrated that gene-based technologies are well advanced in programmes to develop transgenic forages or use molecular genetics tools to breed and select for forages with specific nutritive qualities. Molecular assisted breeding and transgenics could currently be used to: • Reduce the concentration of compounds that retard digestion, especially: – lignin (in grasses); – tannins (in legumes); and – toxins (in legumes).

Biotechnology is no “quick fix” for the infrastructural, political and institutional constraints and policies that are required to facilitate the incorporation of smallholders into commercial production. This implies fundamental revision of policies that tend to favour large-scale, industrial livestock production through artificial economies of scale that are enabled by the externalization of negative environmental impacts. Linking small-scale producers vertically with larger-scale marketers and processors would combine the environmental and poverty-alleviation benefits of small-scale livestock production with the economies of scale that derive from larger-scale processing.
