The article focuses on the international project to sequence the bovine genome. The U.S. National Human Genome Research Institute has funding allotted for the DNA sequencing project. Fonterra and Livestock Improvement in New Zealand has conducted a Holstein-Friesian cross Jersey crossbred trial. Several problems, however, are facing these pilot projects.
