The use of biotechnology has proved to be a key factor in handling different livestock problems. Many issues have proved to be silent killers, and their appropriate diagnosis and treatment are the need of the hour. Advancement in biotechnology and genomics is being used in preventive and clinical medicine, production of recombinant biotechnology-derived vaccines, molecular gene cloning, application of polymerase chain reaction (PCR), Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP), Real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), gene therapy and many more. This chapter will cover the use of genomics and biotechnology in veterinary medicine.

Keywords: Diagnosis, Genomics, Livestock, Treatment.
