Genomics and Biotechnological Advances: in Veterinary, Poultry, and Fisheries is a comprehensive reference covering important topics to guide animal biotechnologists, veterinary clinicians, fishery scientists, and anyone who needs to understand the latest advances in the field of next generation sequencing and genomic editing in animals and fish.

This essential reference provides information on the genomics as well as the various advanced technologies used to enhance the production and management of farm and pet animals, commercial and non-commercial birds and aquatic animals used for food and research purposes. This is a resource for the animal biotechnology research community to understand the latest knowledge and trends in this field to help improve food animal traits and meet the needs of food scarcity.
