Gene Transfer for Enhanced Growth of Livestock
During the past decade, a series of scientific advances have provided the opportunity for the modification of domestic animals in a way that has never before been possible—that is, the ability to insert individual genes or groups of genes into living cells and have them function in a predictable manner.
