Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The genome-enabled improvement of animal production is gaining popularity among researchers due to its utility-driven approaches. Based on bioinformatics tools, successfully incorporating discoveries from genome biology into strategies that enhance animal production will require partnerships between the animal genomics community and data scientists, the biomedical community, evolutionary biologists, and animal health as well as breeding companies. Accordingly, the major advantage lies in the understanding of how genes function and are expressed within various animal populations. Using bioinformatics tools, genomic understanding can propionate the thriving yield of farm animals to bioengineer innovative materials and enhance the productivity of livestock, xenotransplantation, several animal-based populous items for consumption, and even nonconsumption-based products, such as fabrics and silk. Breeding strategies and management practices will require the development of new bioinformatics tools with which to build on linking genetic variation and genome function, an improved ability to accurately use genotypes to predict phenotypes, and to translate this research out of the laboratory and into industry application in the field.

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.
