Abstract: The human genome project has brought a new era not only to medical genetics, but also to livestock molecular genetics. By 'borrowing' everything from techniques and research strategies to actual data from the human genome project, geneticists are making significant progress in applying DNA biotechnologies to livestock production. These applications include parentage testing, identity testing, and diagnostic testing of genetic disorders. Another important application is selection of superior animals for breeding programs by identifying those carrying specific genes. Examples of these applications will be discussed from our work on cattle and sheep molecular genetics.
