Special Issue "Advances in Sheep Genetic Breeding"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 July 2023) | Viewed by 2947
Interests: germplasm resource; breeding technology; key functional gene mining
Sheep are one of the most important domesticated animals, and fast growth, high lambing, good meat quality, and top-quality wool and cashmere have become the main goals pursued by their breeders. With the rapid development and application of modern molecular biology and genetic engineering, a large number of suitable new germplasm resources have been discovered, a large number of functional genes have been mined, and gene editing technology, stem cell breeding technology, breed molecular design technology, and other biological breeding techniques have been applied, promoting major breakthroughs in sheep breeding theory and breeding technology. To better demonstrate and exchange information around new theories, technologies, and methods in the field of sheep breeding, this Special Issue on “Advances in Sheep Genetic Breeding” is established, which will collect high-quality original research articles and reviews to promote scientific and technological innovation in sheep germplasm resources.

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. Genes 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 2600 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.
