Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Genes has devoted several Special Issues to cats, dogs and other companion animal species in the past. Companion animals are the beloved friends of humans and share the environment with their owners. Due to their close phylogenetic relationship with humans and their specific physiological characteristics, they often represent excellent models for human traits and diseases. The importance of genetic research on companion animals is recognized with this Special Issue.
This Special Issue will cover all aspects of companion animal genetics and genomics, including studies on domestication and breed development, genetic diversity, determinants of morphology and coat color, behavioral genetics and genetics of athletic performance, genetics of inherited diseases and cancer genetics. The ever advancing technological developments in sequencing and data analysis, together with large publicly available resource datasets, facilitate new approaches to tackle open questions. We are looking forward to receiving your exciting research manuscripts that will inform biology and (veterinary) medicine.
