This Special Issue, entitled “Poultry Breeding: Genetics and Genomics”, aims to collect high-quality research articles, review articles, and communications on advances in the molecular genetics and genomics of poultry. Improving poultry egg and meat production plays an important role in reducing hunger and maintaining food security around the world. Developments in poultry genetics and breeding have come in part from genetic selection for improved feed efficiency and a better understanding of poultry nutrition. A growing body of research indicates that genetics and genomes have a strong influence on the growth, development and egg-laying performance of poultry. With the development and popularization of sequencing technology, we look forward to witnessing more cutting-edge research in molecular genetics and functional genomes related to chickens, ducks, geese and other species.
Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- Epigenetics in poultry;
- Gene regulation in poultry;
- Multi-omics data analysis, including the transcriptome and metabolome；
- Genome-wide association analysis;
- Variations such as SNPs and Indels in 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.
