Special Issue Information
To assign the function of genes before the genomic era, the target genes were individually explored through molecular biological techniques and populational genetics. Moreover, the quantitative trait loci (QTLs) identification regarding economic traits using the selective useful markers was one of the most important jobs for breeding and genetic achievements in livestock. After the development of DNA chips whole genomes of species, it has been more effective and feasible to find major candidate genes or loci using the genome-wide association study, even some traits have very low heritabilities. More recently, after the development of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, studies have not only focused on genomes, but also transcriptomes to identify the functional genes for target traits including the conventional economic traits and the brand new issues like disease resistance and immune response. This Special Issue “Farm Animal Genes” invites your manuscripts that discuss the function of genes in any kind of livestock animals using the recent advanced molecular genetic technologies, and/or using the whole genomic and transcriptomic NGS data. We also welcome submissions of prospective novel approaches to identify functional genes.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 semimonthly 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 1800 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.
