Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The economic traits of sheep and goats provide people with essential subsistence goods, including meat, milk, fur, etc. Numerous studies, including pan-genomic, genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, epigenomic, metabolomic, and phenomics, have been reported that aim to understand biological processes, explain phenotypic formations, reveal evolutionary events, etc. The Special Issue aims to show new advances and insights in sheep and goat genetics and breeding. Research on all aspects of sheep and goat genetics, breeding, and reproduction will be considered, including studies on reproductive biotechnology, and the regulatory role of genes in traits using different approaches, such as molecular or genomics methods. All the studies could help researchers to reveal the principles of genetics, development, and evolution and could also help breeders in designing and improving breeding approaches to increase productivity in sheep or goats.

This Special Issue aims to collect new advances and insights into genetic mechanism analysis and the application of important economic traits in sheep and goats. We also hope the findings of this Special Issue will help to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying the formation of economic traits and provide approaches to improve the production of sheep and goats. We welcome the submission of multiple article types, such as original research articles, short commutations, reviews, methods, etc.

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.
