Special Issue "Integration of Genomics into Animal Management; Genome-Assisted Animal Management, Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics in cattle"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2021.
Recent rapid developments in genetics and genome science are driving precise animal genetic selection and feeding management in the livestock industry. Since the first bovine genome was sequenced in 2009, the technology has become much faster and cheaper. As a result, cattle bio-big-data such as high-density genotypes, whole-genome sequencing, and multi-omics data are entering into animal genetic improvement and management (more precise animal feeding based on their genetic potential), particularly to select genetically good animals and more efficient feeding trials based on personalized animal genetic information. Moreover, genetic-based feed additives in the cattle industry will become very popular. Therefore, looking into interactions between genetic information and feed-additives is one of the most pertinent research fields in animal science. We would like to invite original research papers on animal precision managements (genotype-based feeding strategies), nutrigenetics (genotype by feed additives interaction) and nutrigenomics using multi-omics data in cattle, which unveils the biological mechanisms underlying the animal complex traits, to provide insights into the impact of genetic and environmental variation at the genome levels.Dr. Seung-Hwan Lee
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Animals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
