    Geneticists, pig & swine breeders, breeding advisors, veterinarians, students & researchers in animal breeding or genetics.

    The theory and application of mammalian genetics have evolved rapidly over the last two decades to include immunogenetics and molecular genetics, creating fresh insights into biological processes. These developments, together with improved management practices, have revolutionised pig production.

    This massive tome is the ultimate reference book on porcine genetics. An impressive list of international experts has combined to produce a truly exceptional publication at an amazingly low price for the deep mine of information it contains.
