I hope that you are all doing well.
Over the past decade, the application of genome-wide association studies and genomic selection in animals was mainly based on SNP chip data. Advances in next-generation sequencing technology and the reduction of sequencing costs have led to a surge in omics data including genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, metabolomics, proteomics, microbiomics etc. These rich omics data have provided unprecedented opportunities to systematically elucidate the biological mechanisms of economically important traits from multiple layers in the animals. Meanwhile, integrating omics data and genomic knowledge can improve the accuracy of genomic prediction. However, it is a major challenge not only in systematically analyzing these data and formulating new hypotheses but also effectively utilizing them for animal genetic improvement and conservation.
This Special Issue aims to collect high-quality original research articles, mini-reviews, and full-length reviews to address emerging challenges, focusing on “Systematic analysis and application of omics data in animal breeding”. Our topic welcomes but is not necessarily limited to progress in the knowledge of the aforementioned issues. Contributions by experts in the field in the form of research papers and critical reviews are called for.
We look forward to your submissions.

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.
