This book covers the advance areas in animal health improvement, production, reproduction and more accurate about diagnoses, and better treatments. This book include sixteen chapters like Genome Editing, Pharmacokinetics, Chromatographic and spectrometric techniques, Sexing of the sperm, Next Generation Sequencing Technology, Designer Milk and associated chapters like Contract Farming for Sustainable Development. Chapters discussed in this book are both in theoretical and practical aspects. For the beginners in the veterinary profession how to use biomaterials for safety has been discussed in details. The different chapters covered with maturation of acolytes and ovarian apoptosis are beneficial to know about the practical aspects while handling the ovaries in laboratory. The purpose of the book is to update the readers regarding different aspects related to veterinary sciences. How the pig can be used as animal model for drug metabolism and regulation has been discussed in details. How the farmers in field can take advantages of communication for animal welfare have also been discussed which help to promote the transfer the technology from lab to land. This book will also aware the livestock keepers for economy aspects also. This book would be useful for the researchers, academicians, scholars and policy makers.
