Special Issue "Breeding and Functional Genomics in Animals"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 November 2023 | Viewed by 1345

Animal breeding is entering the big data era. With the rapid development of high-throughput sequencing technology, the generation of multi-omics data in livestock has been accelerated, leading to the arrival of a new era of "animal breeding big data". This not only provides new opportunities and challenges for animal breeding, but also provides new possibilities for the genetic analysis of economically important traits in animals. Understanding the economically important traits of animals can be used for management interventions in breeding programs and agricultural innovations.
Large-scale molecular markers and precise phenotypic data provide an important basis for the GWAS application and QTL mapping. Population genetics is a subfield of genetics that deals with genetic differences within and between populations, helping to explain the genetic background of the studied population and provide some key information on the application of GWAS. In addition, omic studies will facilitate and accelerate the breeding process and provide applications for genetic improvement, such as GS and MAS.
This Special issue, "Breeding and Functional Genomics in Animals", will cover a range of research topics and review articles on the latest developments in genomics, transcriptomics, population genetics, and other multi-omics that can strengthen breeding strategies and advance the breeding process of livestock species.

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.
