Abstract

One of the major burdens on the livestock industry is loss of animals and decrease of production efficiency due to disease. Advances in sequencing technology and genome editing techniques provide the unique opportunity to generate animals with improved traits. In this review we discuss the techniques currently applied to genetic manipulation of livestock species and the efforts in making animals disease resistant or resilient.
