Genetics and Breeding for Disease Resistance of Livestock is a solid resource that combines important information on the underlying genetic causes and governing factors for disease resistance in food animals and applications for breeding purposes. It describes genomics at each species level to help researchers and students understand disease resistance and immunology using genomics and its application in breeding for disease resistance. This useful reference makes it easy for readers to understand and undergo further research in immunology and disease resistance for livestock. It includes novel applications and research material that is ideal for students, teachers, academicians and researchers.

  • Presents basic principles and protocols to describe research methodologies through diagrammatic illustrations with figures, flow charts, examples, and references
  • Covers various disease occurrences in livestock and the methodologies available to identify the various pathogens responsible for these diseases
  • Includes advanced breeding techniques and practical applications
