Proteomics, like other post-genomics tools, has been growing at a rapid pace and has important applications in numerous fields of science. While its use in animal and veterinary sciences is still limited, there have been considerable advances in this field in recent years, in areas as diverse as physiology, nutrition and food of animal origin processing. This is mainly as a consequence of a wider availability and better understanding of proteomics methodologies by animal and veterinary researchers. This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art account of the status of farm-animal proteomics research, focusing on the principles behind proteomics methodologies and its specific applications and offering clear example.

This book will cover several topics to elaborate how proteomics may enhance agricultural productivity. These include crop and food proteomics, farm animal proteomics, aquaculture, microorganisms and insect proteomics. It will also cover several technical advances, which may address the current need for comprehensive proteome analysis.An emerging field of the proteomics aim is to integrate knowledge from basic sciences and to translate it into agricultural applications to solve issues related to economic values of farm animals, crops, food security, health, and energy sustainability. Given the wealth of information generated and to some extent applied in agriculture, there is the need for more efficient and broader channels to freely disseminate the information to the scientific community.

Animal genetics is a foundational discipline in the fields of animal science, animal breeding, and veterinary sciences. While genetics underpins the healthy development and breeding of all living organisms, this is especially true in domestic animals, specifically with respect to breeding for key traits. Molecular and Quantitative Animal Genetics is a new textbook that takes an innovative approach, looking at both quantitative and molecular breeding approaches. The bookprovides a comprehensive introduction to genetic principles and their applications in animal breeding. This text provides a useful overview for those new to the field of animal genetics and breeding, covering a diverse array of topics ranging from population and quantitative genetics to epigenetics and biotechnology. Molecular and Quantitative Animal Genetics will be an important and invaluable educational resource for undergraduate and graduate students and animal agriculture professionals. Divided into six sections pairing fundamental principles with useful applications, the book's comprehensive coverage will make it an ideal fit for students studying animal breeding and genetics at any level.

The 8th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PIG REPRODUCTION (ICPR) was held in June 2009. The meeting provided another excellent opportunity for scientific and social interaction among delegates actively involved in most aspects of pig reproduction. 21 invited speakers from 11 countries reviewed the latest advances in pig reproductive biology and the links of this knowledge to implementation in the swine industry; covering the following themes:• Physiological roles of the boar ejaculate • Future developments in swine AI • State-of-the-art in –omic biology • Maturation of the pre-ovulatory follicle • Management of ovarian activity • Control of prenatal development • Future breeding management programs • Conceptus-uterus interactions/early pregnancy signallingState-of-the-art lectures by recognised experts in their fields were intermingled with parallel session presentations of the latest developments in pig reproductive biology and with shorter-presentations by the younger generation of research colleagues, selected from 18 abstracts from eight countries submitted to the conference, many being incorporated in a common theme “Breaking science in pig reproductive biology”.This volume contains manuscripts accompanying the state-of-the art lectures, the parallel sessions and the expanded abstracts. It provides an authoritative and up-to-date source of information on research in pig reproduction. This will be an invaluable resource for students, teachers, veterinarians, animal scientists, consultants and technologists with an interest in all aspects of pig reproduction.

ihr eine gezielt beschnittene Doktrin zu machen, zu deren Verwaltung sich eif rige Leute drängen. - In jedem der verglichenen Fälle war das durchaus nicht , ,im Sinne der Erfinder". Da ist es zur Klärung allemal gut, zu den Quellen hinaufzusteigen und nachzusehen, wo die Ursprünge waren, und wie sich alles seinerzeit entwickelt hat. Dabei schärft sich der Blick für den wesentlichen Kern und das Beiwerk, sowie für sachliche und persönliche Gründe und Bedeutung unausweichlicher Auseinandersetzungen. So sehe ich den Sinn dieses Buches. Ob es ganz objektiv ist? - Das wäre zuviel verlangt! Denn wer kann die Entwicklung seiner Kinder ganz objektiv sehen? Daß es redlich ist, darauf kommt es an; und das muß man ihm zuerkennen. Nicht das Durchsetzen einer Doktrin wird hier betrieben, sondern hier werden dargestellt die Entwicklung und der Inhalt eines neu-entstandenen Wissenschaftszweiges und seiner vielfäl tigen und sorgsam abgewogenen Methoden. Das Buch ist aueh frei von der Meinung, man müsse - um das Gesicht zu wahren - auf Entdeckungsschritten verharren, die einst originell waren, nun aber teilweise überholt sind. Der Ver fasser zeigt sich offen jeder sinnvollen Kritik und Korrektur, ist jedoch ausrei chend unhöflich, um unhaltbare Einwände begründet abzuweisen.

Die Geschichte der Menschheit – eine ewige Abfolge von Krieg, Genozid, Mord, Folter und Vergewaltigung. Und es wird immer schlimmer. Aber ist das richtig? In einem wahren Opus Magnum, einer groß angelegten Gesamtgeschichte unserer Zivilisation, untersucht der weltbekannte Evolutionspsychologe Steven Pinker die Entwicklung der Gewalt von der Urzeit bis heute und in allen ihren individuellen und kollektiven Formen, vom Verprügeln der Ehefrau bis zum geplanten Völkermord. Unter Rückgriff auf eine Fülle von wissenschaftlichen Belegen aus den unterschiedlichsten Disziplinen beweist er zunächst, dass die Gewalt im Laufe der Geschichte stetig abgenommen hat und wir heute in der friedlichsten Epoche der Menschheit leben. Diese verblüffende Tatsache verlangt nach einer Erklärung: Pinker schält in seiner Analyse sechs Entwicklungen heraus, die diesen Trend begünstigt haben, untersucht die Psychologie der Gewalt auf fünf innere Dämonen, die Gewaltausübung begünstigen, benennt vier Eigenschaften des Menschen, die den inneren Dämonen entgegenarbeiten und isoliert schließlich fünf historische Kräfte, die uns heute in der friedlichsten Zeit seit jeher leben lassen. Pinkers Darstellung revolutioniert den Blick auf die Welt und uns Menschen. Und sie macht Hoffnung und Mut. »Pinkers Studie ist eine leidenschaftliche Antithese zum verbreiteten Kulturpessimismus und dem Gefühl des moralischen Untergangs der Moderne.« Der Spiegel »Steven Pinker ist ein Top-Autor und verdient all die Superlative, mit denen man ihn überhäuft« New York Times» Die Argumente von Steven Pinker haben Gewicht [...]. Die Chance, heute Opfer von Gewalt zu werden, ist viel geringer als zu jeder anderen Zeit. Das ist eine spannende Nachricht, die konträr zur öffentlichen Wahrnehmung ist." Deutschlandfunk »Steven Pinker ist ein intellektueller Rockstar« The Guardian »Der Evolutionspsychologe Steven Pinker gilt als wichtigster Intellektueller« Süddeutsche Zeitung »Verflucht überzeugend« Hamburger Abendblatt

This special issue highlights current research in avian genomics. Most contributions relate to the chicken as the model bird species, but advances in the genomics of turkey, duck and other birds are also presented. With a mixture of review articles and original research papers, this publication illustrates how advances in avian genomics have impacted on a wide range of disciplines such as cytogenetics, genetics, immunology, evolution and development. The many resources that are now available to researchers are also described. The knowledge gained from the avian genomes is not just applicable to bird species but offers a useful comparative tool that helps further research across many species. The study of the avian genomes is also shown to play an important role in the fields of agriculture and human health, e.g. in respect to avian influenza. Well edited and up-to-date, this issue is recommended reading to scientists working in any of the above-mentioned fields of avian research.
