Animal biotechnology applications play central role in pharmaceuticals, veterinary medicine, and food production improvement

March 2nd, 2010

Global Information would like to present a new market research report, "Animal Biotechnology - Technologies, Markets and Companies" by Jain Pharmabiotech.

It is crucial to understand animal genetics as it plays an important role in biotechnology applications that manage genetic disorders and improve animal breeding. Proteomics, genomics, and bioinformatics are also currently being applied to the field of animal biotechnology. For example, genetic engineering is practiced in farm animals and nuclear transfer technology has become a significant and preferred method for cloning animals. Additionally, scientists are looking into in vitro meat production by culture.

Transgenic technologies are employed for improving the meat in farm animals and milk production, in addition to protein production for human medical uses. Moreover, biotechnology applications are used to facilitation xenotransplantation procedures from animals to humans.

Some potential biotechnology applications in the management of several animal diseases include: classic swine fever, avian flue, foot-and-mouth disease, and bovine spongiform encephalopathy. Vaccines, specifically those genetically engineered or DNA vaccines are the most important biotechnology-based products. RNA interference technology is presently being applied for research purposes in veterinary medicine. Meanwhile, gene therapy for pet animal diseases is an area showing rapid development and growth as many of the technologies used in human clinical trials were also developed in animals considering many of the diseases of domestic cats and dogs are comparable to those in humans.
