by Vinod Kumar Yata, Published: 2022, FileType: PDF

This book presents basic principles and discusses the state-of-the-art methods of sperm sexing in livestock. It reviews the challenges and critical opinions on the conventional sperm sexing methods and characteristic features of spermatozoa of farm animals which could help to develop novel methods of sperm sexing. The book also presents principles and applications of flow cytometry for sperm separation. The chapters of the book elucidate methods and difficulties in developing sperm sexing methods. Notably, it covers recent research on immunological and nanotechnology-based sperm sexing methods. The book also provides information on the development of semen extenders. Towards the end, the book examines ethical and commercial aspects of sperm sexing. It is an ideal reference book for students, researchers and professionals working towards improving livestock production.

The book focuses on describing the conventional and state-of-the-art methods of sperm sexing. Characterization of the animal spermatozoa is one of the major areas for the development of novel methods of sperm sexing, and this book provides an enhanced description of this research area. A separate chapter is devoted to discussing the commercially available sperm sexing based on fluorescent-activated cell sorting.

The possibility of sperm sexing by immunological methods discussed in this book to an expanded level. Recent advances in sperm sexing methods, based on microfluidics, nanoparticles, and genetic engineering, were discussed in this book. This book provides insight into the various cryopreservation methods of semen which is very crucial for the storage and transport of sexed semen. Ethical issues raised by animal welfare societies and the common public are discussed in this book. Patent issues and commercial aspects of sperm sexing are also discussed in this book.
