Representatives from leading laboratories working on the genetic engineering of farm mammals, poultry, and fish discuss current knowledge, methodology, technical improvements, and successes in applying transgenic technology to a range of animals that are important in agriculture. Among their topics are developing genetic tools, embryonic stem cells, nuclear transfer, the status of sperm-mediated delivery methods for gene transfer, generating transgenic poultry by transfecting primordial germ cells, using bacterial genes to modify domestic animal biochemistry, changing the composition and properties of milk, a comparison of traditional breeding and transgenesis in farmed fish with implications for growth enhancement and fitness, and ethics and animal welfare. The 18 papers are updated from the invited presentations at an August 1997 conference in Tahoe City, California. Distributed in the US by Oxford University Press. Annotation c.
