Animal biotechnology has already emerged as a very big research area and has many practical applications in related industries. The main idea behind this technology is to use genetic engineering in developing a particular type of breed of the animals and produce the preferred one in bulk which is sometimes referred to as cloning also. Apart from that it has a lot of research potential in studying and finding the ways of transplanting animal parts in humans. The technology of gene replacement, gene splicing, and many other DNA level manipulations have opened a lot of opportunities in this area.

I want to add that this area is not an easy area to work as it is something in the nature of modifying living organisms and getting the results in macroscopic as well as microscopic world connected to the life form. If used in a positive and constructive way for the welfare of the human race it has great potential. There are always some ethical and legal issues related to these types of scientific advancements and researches done and I believe that research scholars will keep all those aspects in the back of their minds so that no unwanted benefit is derived or thought from those miraculous learnings in this ever-growing field.
