Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to collect high-quality papers related to all aspects of animal science, including anatomy, behavior, embryo manipulation, feeding, nutrition, physiology, histology, diseases, animal management, health and welfare, genetics and breeding, gut development, functional food, microbial ecology, gut microbiome, next-generation sequencing and immunology. We encourage researchers from various fields within the journal’s scope to contribute papers highlighting the latest developments in their research field, or to invite relevant experts and colleagues to do so.

Original research, reviews, communications, case reports and other types of articles are invited to improve knowledge and practice in animal science.
