1. I introduce the problems facing poultry breeding in the future and the role biotechnology may have to play. 2. I then review recent research in the genomics and bioinformatics of poultry and where this may lead in the near future. 3. Finally, I discuss the scientific and commercial opportunities of this research and strategies for implementation into poultry breeding practices.
