Poultry Genetics, Breeding and Biotechnology

By W. M. Muir and S. E. Aggrey

Poultry Genetics, Breeding and Biotechnology PDF book represents the first complete integration of current knowledge in this area. It addresses issues associated with poultry breeding particularly by examining quantitative and molecular genetics and the uses of transgenic technology. A special section covers the important area of disease resistance and transmission.

As a whole, the book provides extensive and detailed information on basically all important topics related to poultry breeding and genetics.
