KEYWORDS: Animal production - Biotechnology - Chimeras - Cloning - Oestrus control - Predetermining sex - Reproductive technology. Genetic studies of endangered animals can also result in increased genetic diversity which can result in healthier populations of species. The conference aims were to adopt a global plan of action for conserving animal genetic resources as its main outcome. Chimeric animals can be produced in the common farm animal species and will play an important role in genetic engineering, particularly when embryonic stem cell lines are produced in these species. Reprod. Sci., 79: 137-143. Embryo biotechnology in reproductive medicine Karl Illmensee, Ph.D. Genesis Fertility Center, Patras, Greece ABSTRACT Mammalian embryo biotechnology with multiple applications in reproductive and therapeutic medicine has been summarized in this review article.

Reproductive Biotechnology and Gene Mapping: Tools for Conserving Rare Breeds of Livestock JA Long Animal Biosciences and Biotechnology Laboratory, Beltsville Agricultural Research Center, US Department of Agriculture, Beltsville, MD, USA Anim. The main reproductive biotechnologies applied in cows, sheep and goats are described in Chapters 6 and 7, while in Chapter 8 the promising embryos in vitro production is described in pigs. Biotechnology in Animal Production in Developing Countries Ramli Bin Abdullah+, Wan Khadijah Wan Embong and Hui Hui Soh Animal Biotechnology-Embryo Laboratory, Institute of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Science, University of Malaya, 50603 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Abstract. In this paper, the current and potential contributions of reproductive and molecular biotechnology are considered as tools of conserving rare breeds of livestock. reproductive cycle from game- togenesis and in vitro fertilization to assessment of the fertilization potential of the gametes, as well as analyses on the implantation and pregnancy. 1 Department of Animal Reproduction, INIA, 28040 Madrid, Spain 2 Zoo-Aquarium Madrid, 28011 Madrid, Spain Abstract: The American flamingo is a useful model for development of successful semen cryopreservation procedures to be applied to threatened related species from the family Phoenicopteridae, and to permit genetic material banking. Application of reproductive biotechnology in animals: Implications and potentials applications of reproductive cloning.
