Abstract [en]

This chapter reviews the advances in semen assessment methodologies and the capacity of different assays to determine male fertility or infertility. A comparative view of the different species for which clinical andrology and modern seminology interact with breeding strategies and the application of assisted reproduction technologies (ARTs) is presented. Particular attention is paid to new methods for determining DNA and transcript intactness, as well as to those biomimetic in vitro assays that, by resembling events during sperm transport, storage and interaction with the female genital tract and the oocyte, provide clues for sperm selection and the role of sperm sub-populations in the ejaculate. Finally, it attempts to identify those techniques that might be available for clinicians and breeders 20 years from now.
