This text part offers a review of the research and developing technologies in the expanding areas of genetics, embryology, and molecular biology from experts in the various fields. It includes sections covering manipulation of the embryo, and the mapping and engineering of the genome, as well as information on nuclear transfer and the development of xenotransplantation. Possibilities for future research and development are also considered.
