"Animal breeders and veterinarians have become increasingly interested in breeding strategies aimed at improving disease resistance in farm animals, as this lessens farmers' dependence on the use of drugs at a time when there is concern about their high usage in animals to be used for food products. There has also been concern at the level of drug resistance now shown by many disease organisms, and the cost of veterinary drugs in developing countries. This book consists of 27 chapters by

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a significant zoonotic pathogen with a global distribution, and a considerable economic impact. It has a notoriously complex epidemiology, varying by affected region and often involving multiple-host species. Here we present an international collection of papers that address both national and international factors impacting on the control of bovine tuberculosis. We hope this Research Topic will provide a forum which may generate a greater understanding of the disease in a wider context, and inform future eradication

The sequencing of the mouse genome has placed the mouse front and center as the most important mammalian genetics model. However, no recent volume has detailed the genetic contributions the mouse has made across the spectrum of the life sciences; this book aims to fill that vacuum. Mouse genetics research has made enormous contributions to the understanding of basic genetics, human genetics, and livestock genetics and breeding. The wide-ranging topics in the book include the mouse genome sequencing effort, molecular
