The Genetics of Cattle
Edited by R Fries, Technical University of Munich, Freising-Weihenstephan, Germany
, A Ruvinsky, Professor of Genetics, University of New England, Australia
Within the past two decades, new methods created by molecular genetics and cytogenetics as well as quantitative genetics have greatly enlarged the amount and quality of genetic information available in domestic mammals. Cattle have been significantly involved in this process, particularly due to the large impact of new knowledge and methods on the economy and culture of numerous countries for both meat and milk production. As demands for these goods increase, modern genetic technologies in immunogenetics, cytogenetics, biochemical and molecular genetics create optimistic expectations for the future. A comprehensive reference to work on genetics and selection of cattle Written by internationally recognised experts All relevant topics, from phylogeny, morphological traits, diseases and behaviour to transgenics, performance traits and genome mapping included Invaluable to advanced students and researchers, as well as livestock producers and veterinarians.
Animal breeding and genetics.

Since graduation from Novosibirsk State University (Russia) in 1969 A. Ruvinsky has been working in several fields of genetics for more than 40 years. He received his PhD in 1974 and Dr.Sc. in 1985. In 1986 A. Ruvinsky was elected as head of laboratory of animal genetics and 1988 as Vice Director of the Institute of Cytology and Genetics of Russian Academy of Sciences. In 1993 A. Ruvinsky joined the University of New England, Australia. Professor Ruvinsky published more than 100 refereed papers in leading genetic journals and edited 11 books so far. This includes the series of books on mammalian genetics, which currently undergoes 2nd edition. His most recent book "Genetics and Randomness" was published in 2009.
