Author(s): Priyadharsini R, Selvam R, Satheeshkumar P, and Richard Jagatheesan PN
At present, advancement has been achieved in genome edited livestock by means of technologies like ZFN, TALEN, and CRISPR-cas 9. The gene editing technologies can cut the precise target sequence in the DNA and able to add, removal, or replacement of gene via disruption at exact sequence of DNA. The recent technology like CRISPR had ability to generate multiple genomic cuts in a simpler way. Genome editing tools have significant applications in livestock production such as disease resistance, to increase the production, for improving the milk quality, elimination of milk allergen, animal health and welfare and bioreactors. This paper discusses about genome editing technologies, its application and ethics in livestock.
