Summary This book contains articles on the quantitative and molecular genetics of poultry, the uses of transgenic technology, and genetics of disease resistance and transmission. It is divided into 4 parts: problems and issues associated with poultry breeding (part 1; 6 chapters); breeding strategies and objectives (part 2; 9 chapters); disease resistance and transmission (part 3; 7 chapters); and the use of genomics and bioinformatics in poultry (part 4; 12 chapters).
