Animal science is being transformed by advances in molecular genetics. This book covers this exciting transformation. Both the diagnosis and treatment of disease are discussed in seven chapters by a team of leading international authorities. From oncogenesis and hemophilia to retroviral virulence and genome mapping, this volume yields an understanding of fundamental mechanisms of action and insightful means of diagnosis and treatment. Practicing veterinarians and researchers in animal science will find this book useful.Most genes determine the construction of proteins, which also are chainlike molecules, with amino acids making up the links ... The DNA strands of the double helix have opposite directions (a DNA chain has a 5a#39; end and a 3a#39; end; see Fig. la).
