The Special Issue (September 2013) of the Animal Nutrition and Feed Technology contains 24 articles and most of those are based on data generated by projects, which were supported by the CRP D3.10.27. The articles describe strategies of exogenous enzymes utilization and especially focus on the effect of phytase and non-phytase enzyme segments, enzymes combinations, including enzymes produced by genetically modified bacteria, protozoa and fungi, on enteric fermentation to improve animal productivity and health. The special issue covered various topics that will benefit scientists, students and extension workers for in-depth understanding of the science of enzyme treatment of feeds and forages for economic and ecological benefits of livestock farming.

Estimation of microbial protein supply in ruminants using urinary purine derivatives.
This publication presents various models, describing the quantitative excretion of purine derivatives in urine, developed for various breeds of cattle and for sheep, goat, camel and buffalo and their use for estimation of microbial protein supply in ruminant livestock. It also describes progress made over the last decade in analytical methods for determining purine derivatives, and a unique approach for estimating microbial protein supply using spot urine samples developed under the FAO/IAEA CRP. This approach of using spot urine samples dispenses with quantitative recovery of urine, enabling its use by field and extension workers for evaluation of the nutritional status of farm animals. Future areas of research are also highlighted in the book. This book is a good source of reference for research workers, students and extension workers alike.
Methods in Gut Microbial Ecology for Ruminants.
Molecular Diagnostic PCR handbook.
This book gives a comprehensive account of the practical aspects of PCR and strong consideration is given to ensure its optimal use in a laboratory environment. This includes the setting-up of a PCR laboratory, Good Laboratory Practice and standardised PCR protocols to detect animal disease pathogens.
