    Analytical Techniques in Meat Science is a comprehensive compilation of all the relevant methodologies for the quality analysis of meat. The content of the book is designed to cater to requirement of meat producers, regulatory agencies, researchers, students, teachers, laboratory staff etc. It covers techniques for physico-chemical analysis, species
    identification and microbiological examination of meat. Also, it contains the latest biotechnological and proteomic techniques for meat quality evaluation. To help the reader understand better figures, tables, line diagrams, etc are used frequently whenever needed. Some important pictures are given in plates for lucid and clear understanding of the
