Abstract

Hungary needs new animal breeding strategies to meet the high quality requirements of the EU. Animal biotechnology offers tools to achieve that goal. This paper presents details of the overall strategy, including the search for new genes, protection against gene-erosion, regulations, management and use of new technologies in genetic analyses, micromanipulation, in vitro embryo production and cryopreservation. Nuclear cloning, especially with somatic cells might offer a future break trough in animal breeding. The paper analyses potential benefits and negative effects of this new method, and provides a detailed list of critical technological steps.
