About this eBook

PREFACE In an uncertain world, one never knows what the future will bring - but one of the enduring attractions of science is that, it is almost certain that, this time next year we ll have greater understanding and insight . Many remarkable progresses have been happened in molecular biology with defining discoveries and great developments that are shaping the way we use materials in the animal science. Ensuring food security for future through the increased animal productivity must be an issue of great importance of our country. It is well known that India is a rich repository of indigenous breeds, with a total of 144 indigenous animal breeds including 37 for cattle, 13 for buffalo, 23 for goat, 39 for sheep and 15 for chicken etc. Although, indigenous breeds are well adapted to the local climate and thrive better in adverse environmental conditions and better genetic resistance to disease, simply much less productive than their counterparts. Now, the question of nutrional security and increasing animal productivity has a number of dimensions that extend beyond the production, availability, and demand for food. Advanced Molecular Biology techniques have the potential to improve the performance of our animals. A step towards the use of quantitative techniques and genomic information in livestock breed improvement will continue to contribute to increased production and efficient genetic gains. However, insufficient familiarity towards the recent molecular techniques makes our research work less regulated and directionless with less impact. This book gives a comprehensive account of theoretical and practical aspects of molecular techniques such as isolation of nucleic acids, PCR, detection of SNPs through SSCP, microsateilite, cell culture, gene cloning and expression, realtime PCR., bioinformatics including designing of primers sequence analysis, preparation of phylogram, gene annotation, BLAST search, submission of sequence data in GenBank, statistical analysis of genotypic data etc. This book will be very much useful for the students, professors, scientists and researchers who are involved in conducting experiments in Biotechnology, Microbiology,
Genetics and any branch of Life Science. I convey my sincere thanks to D. R.N. Chatterjee, Director, Project Directorate on Poultry, Hyderabad and the staff members of the Project Directorate on Poultry, Hyderabad for constant inspiration and kind help during preparation of manuscript. I am deeply indebted to the contributors of the chapters for preparation of the book without which it was not possible to bring it in this form. Last but not least, I wish to express my sincere thanks to all whoever has helped me to prepare the manuscript in whatsoever form.
