Biotechnology can be defined as any technique that uses living organisms or substances from such organisms to make or modify a product to improve animals or to develop microorganisms for specific purposes.Developing countries included SEA countries are faced with the challenge to rapidly increase animal productivity to full fill the need of the animal protein of their growing populations. Among agricultural and allied fields, animal production and their product have probably benefitted the most from biotechnology. But successful application of biotechnology has generally been limited to developed countries.Biotechnology is not new. Man has used it for thousands of years to manufacture product such as beer, wine, and bread. Conventional animal breeding which involves selection and mating of phenotypically preferred individuals is a good example of age-old application of biotechnology. What is new about biotechnology come from more recent breakthroughs such as DNA recombinant technology and associated techniques, embryo manipulation technology etc. These have enhanced possibilities for manipulating biological systems for the benefit of mankind.
