Man has domesticated though a mere handful of about 40 useful animal species out of innumerable ones having desirable characteristics for mankind and has also been making continuous efforts to develop various breeds and types of animals through selection and breeding practices as well as to know new methods of improvement for various animal and plant species to serve various purposes like milk, meat, eggs, fibre, hides/skin, fuel, manure, draft power etc. As a result a new branch of science, called Genetics had emerged during 20th century with tremendous advancement to exploit the genetic variability for permanent improvement in production and reproduction efficiency of animal and plant populations. The genetics has gained so much popularity that it has found its place in the education curriculum of Agriculture and Veterinary streams throughout the world.
