Discussion on the various advances in techniques used to enhance animal reproduction and livestock productivity. Basic concepts of mammalian reproductive function will be studied. However, students should have a working knowledge of reproductive physiology. Methods such as artificial insemination, embryo transfer, in vitro fertilization, and embryo manipulation will be covered. Topics will be viewed from basic and applied perspectives. A comprehensive review of current literature will be included as a part of all discussions. Laboratory time in connection with this course will provide hands-on experience with some practices associated with reproductive biology. Prerequisite(s): Previous course in Reproductive.
