A new video explains WSU’s ground-breaking science behind surrogate sires.
For the first time, a team of scientists led by WSU’s Jon Oatley have created pigs, goats and cattle that can serve as viable “surrogate sires,” male animals that produce sperm carrying only the genetic traits of donor animals.
With the world’s population projected to reach ~10 billion in 30 years, scientists are working to use genetic technologies to address future food security problems.
