Following compilation contains reviews and original research works in the fields of modern reproductive biotechnologies, genomic instability, genomics, veterinary genetics of the livestock species. Articles discuss aspects connected to livestock reproduction, primarily cattle reproduction, and its' optimization using modern biotechnological and genomic methods and approaches. Problems of both fundamental character, for example, problems of variability of animal genetic apparatus and its' connection with adaptation to ecological and geographical features of the habitats, formation of the breeds, selection and reproductive status of certain individuals, and of practical character, for example, peculiarities of the separate steps in IVP of the bovine embryos, or production of the leptospirosis vaccines, are concerned. In addition, the compilation concerns itself with bioethical aspects of the reproductive technologies use in livestock production and medicine. Present issue allows reader to learn about current situation in separate fields of reproductive biotechnology with regard to livestock production. This compilation can be useful for all readers, who take interest in current situation in the agrarian sector, livestock production, agrobiotechnology development and application of biotechnological methods in dealing with the farm animals, for agricultural specialists, and for lecturers and students of the higher educational institutions of biological and agricultural specialization.
