About the Author

Professor Louis Marie Houdebine is currently Director of Research at INRA (Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique) in Paris. More specifically he heads the 'Cell Differentiation' team whose research includes, amongst other things, using transgenic rabbits for the study of atherosclerosis and aids, and looking at how transgenic mice and rabbits expressing human and sheep PrP genes can be used to aid further research into Creutzfeld-Jacob disease and scrapie.
Transgenese Animale et Clonage was first published in French by Dunod earlier this year. The French edition was designed to be a concise, introductory book of no more than 150 pages providing the reader with the essentials of the subject, i.e current research and applications of transgenesis and cloning, with limited technical details and references.
