This book presents the latest in mammary gland transgenesis, the exploitation of transgenic technology for the production of therapeutic proteins by routine or conventional methods. Following a section with an overview of all relevant methodologies, readers will find relevant information on the regulation of milk gene expression and bioreactor species such as cattle, rabbits and pigs.
