This 2nd book provides fundamental concepts and recent applications of biotechnological methods, such as genetic selection, breeding methods and genetic engineering tools. Biotechnology has remarkably improved the productivity of livestock by increasing the reproduction efficiency and decreasing the generation time. The chapters detail the mechanisms of methods for animal reproduction and breeding methods. This book focus on the impact of minerals, steroids metabolic stress, nutritional stress and anti-nutritional factors on the livestock reproduction.



1. Impact of sex steroids on the stress response and welfare in female farm ruminants

Aline Freitas-de-Melo and Rodolfo Ungerfeld

2. Insights from proteomics in kidney disease diagnosis and various in vitro and in vivo experimental models

Vikram Patial, Garima Dadhich, and Rajiv Kumar

3. Generation of gene edited pigs

S. Navarro-Serna, C. Piñeiro-Silva, R Romar, J. Parrington, and J Gadea

4. Dietary anti-nutritional factors and their roles in livestock nutrition

Salma H. Abu Hafsa, Ayman A. Hassan, Mona M.MY. Elghandour, Alberto Barbabosa-Pliego, Miguel Mellado, and Abdelfattah Z.M. Salem

5. Genetic engineering tools and techniques in livestock production

Ranjitha H.B., Madhu Ramesh, Subhasmita Behera, Dhanesh ValiyaValappil, Suresh H. Basagoudanavar, and Anjum Sherasiya

6. Mineral Ions in Regulation of Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Ovarian Axis 

Mustafa Hassan Jan, Harpreet Singh, and Shikha Kapil

7. Molecular Insights of Compromised Female Reproduction in Ruminants under Metabolic and Nutritional Stress

S. Nandi, S. K Tripathi, PSP Gupta, and S. Mondal



Dr. Vinod Kumar Yata is an interdisciplinary researcher working at National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal, India. Previously, he worked as an Assistant professor at the Department of Biotechnology, Dr. B R Ambedkar National Institute of Technology Jalandhar, Punjab, India. He received his Ph.D. in Biotechnology from Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati. He specializes in interdisciplinary research which includes Nanotechnology, Microfluidics, Animal Biotechnology, Cancer biology and Bioinformatics. He has developed a microfluidic device for the separation of live and motile spermatozoa form cattle semen samples. His research interests have been focused on the development of nanocarriers, understanding prodrug enzyme therapy, and targeted drug delivery. He elucidated the structural features and binding interactions of several biomolecules by in silico methods. He has published four books as an editor and one book as an author with Springer Nature publisher. He has published several research papers in peer reviewed international journals and presented papers in several international conferences.

Dr. Ashok Kumar Mohanty is an eminent scientist in Animal Biotechnology and is currently serving as Joint Director, ICAR-Indian Veterinary Research Institute, Mukteswar, Uttarakhand, India.  His group is involved in various basic and applied research related to animal production systems. His research group has made pioneering contributions in the field of Animal Biotechnology, with emphasis on Gene cloning, Expression and Functional characterization of Animal Proteins, Proteomics in Animal Production, Cell and Molecular Biology and Structural Biology of Proteins. His group has developed a Buffalo Mammary Epithelial cell line for the first time which can be used as a model system to understand lactation biology in animal as well as human. His team has also developed a pregnancy diagnostic kit for the early detection of pregnancy cattle and buffalo. His group is also extensively involved in developing low cost technology for semen sexing in cattle. He has organized a number of national and international workshops and international conferences. He is a recipient of several awards which includes, DBT Overseas Associateship by Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India., Jawaharlal Nehru Award (gold medal) by Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), New Delhi for outstanding postgraduate research in the field of Animal Biotechnology.  He is the Fellow of National Academy of Dairy Sciences (NADS), India and executive member of proteomics society of India and associate fellow of National Academy of Veterinary Science, India. He has supervised more than 50 graduate, PhD students and post docs. He published more than 200 peer reviewed research and review papers. He has also authored 8 book chapters in in the areas of animal and food biotechnology published by national and international publishers.

Dr. Eric Lichtfouse is professor of environmental sciences and scientific writing at Aix Marseille University, Xi'an Jiaotong University and the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology. He has invented carbon-13 dating, a molecular-level method allowing to study the dynamics of organic compounds in temporal pools of complex environmental media. He has discovered temporal pools of individual substances in complex media such as soils. He is Chief Editor and founder of the journal Environmental Chemistry Letters, and the book series Sustainable Agriculture Reviews and Environmental Chemistry for a Sustainable World. He is the author of the book Scientific Writing for Impact Factor Journals. He has awards in analytical chemistry and scientific editing.
