Within the past two decades, new methods created by molecular genetics and cytogenetics as well as quantitative genetics have greatly enlarged the amount and quality of genetic information available in domestic mammals. Cattle have been significantly involved in this process, particularly due to the large impact of new knowledge and methods on the economy and culture of numerous countries for both meat and milk production. As demands for these goods increase, modern genetic technologies in immunogenetics, cytogenetics, biochemical and molecular genetics create optimistic expectations for the future.
A comprehensive reference to work on genetics and selection of cattle
Written by internationally recognized experts
All relevant topics, from phylogeny, morphological traits, diseases and behavior to transgenics, performance traits and genome mapping included
Invaluable to advanced students and researchers, as well as livestock producers and veterinarians.

Anatoly Ruvinsky Since graduation from Novosibirsk State University (Russia) in 1969, A. Ruvinsky has been working in several fields of genetics for more than 40 years. He received his PhD in 1974 and Dr.Sc. in 1985. In 1986, Ruvinsky was elected as head of laboratory of animal genetics and 1988 as Vice Director of the Institute of Cytology and Genetics of Russian Academy of Sciences. In 1993, he joined the University of New England, Australia. Professor Ruvinsky published more than 100 refereed papers in leading genetic journals and edited 11 books so far. This includes the series of books on mammalian genetics, which currently undergoes 2nd edition. His most recent book, Genetics and Randomness, was published in 2009.Review:
"Collects essential data concerning cattle genetics and brings together previously disparate areas of research. Early chapters cover the systematics and phylogeny of cattle, domestication, and factorial genetics, followed by chapters on biochemical polymorphism, immunogenetics and disease resistance, genome structure, and gene mapping. Later chapters are devoted to genetics applied to cattle improvement. Standard genetic nomenclature for cattle and cattle breeds is presented. The editors are affiliated with the Technical University of Munich, Germany, and the University of New England, Australia."--SciTech Book News
