Special Issue "Livestock: Genomics, Genetics and Breeding"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 February 2024 | Viewed by 2309
Livestock can provide meat, eggs, milk, and fiber for use in daily life. With the development of molecular biology, microarray and sequencing techniques, many major genes and the underlying regulatory mechanisms of these traits will be revealed at transcriptional, post-transcriptional and translational levels, even reaching the epigenetic level. The establishment of the relationships between genes and these traits will be useful for breeding livestock and the promotion of livestock’s performance.
In this Special Issue, we will present state-of-the-art work in livestock breeding, gathering the most recent advancements in our field in one place.
