‚Organizing 57 papers to cover the whole spectrum of animal genomics researchers the editor provides us with an update on the current status of gene maps in different livestock and pet/companion animal species … Even the rainbow trout genome is presented in a single chapter, and this fact marks definitely the volume as fully exhaustive of the animal genomes at present under study.'
European Journal of Histochemistry
The beginning of an exciting new era aimed at improving animal production, reproduction and health
This publication provides an update on the current status of gene maps in different livestock and pet/companion animal species. The findings summarized in species specific commentaries and original articles testify the rapid advances made in the field of animal genomics. Of significant interest is the fact that current investigations are providing headways for two important and exciting research fronts:

  • targeted high-resolution mapping leading to the application of genomic information in addressing questions of economic and biological significance in animals, and
  • the initiation of whole genome sequencing projects for some of the animal species. Like in humans and mice, this will set the stage for a new level of research and real time complex analysis of the genomes of these species.

    Animal Genomics signifies the beginning of a new era in this field and celebrates the achievements of the past 20 years of genomics research. It will be of special interest to researchers involved in genome analysis - both gross chromosomal as well as molecular - in various animal species, and to comparative and evolutionary geneticists.
