Livestock is important for biodiversity and the development of global animal husbandry. Therefore, this Special Issue, “Livestock Genomics, Genetics and Breeding”, aims to collect high-quality research articles, review articles and communications on the recent advances in molecular genetics, genomics and breeding of livestock. The publication of the accurate livestock reference genome (goat, sheep, cattle, etc.) and the rapid development of the newest wide-range high-throughput techniques have enabled us to reveal the complicated molecular mechanisms of important phenotypic traits and estimate the quantitative traits important for the breeding of livestock. Based on this, we hope to present the state of the art in the field of livestock genetics, genomics and breeding using multi-omics approaches (for GWAS, GS, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics). With the help of your contribution, We look forward to witnessing more cutting-edge research for the genomics, genetics and the breeding of livestock.
Topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:
- Molecular mechanisms research;
- Multi-omics data analysis;
- Genome selection;
- Genome-wide association analysis;
- Gene regulation and expression;
- Screening of important loci and 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. 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.
