Genetics Selection Evolution
Publisher: BioMed Central
Genetics Selection Evolution is an open access, peer-reviewed, on-line
journal dedicated to presenting original research on all aspects of genetics
and selection in both farm and experimental animals and in any related
With the vast, recent increase in the amount and spectrum of available
genetic data, there is an ever-increasing requirement for the collaboration
and successful integration of varied results and techniques in furthering
the advancement of the future of animal genetics. GSE focuses on
contributing to these developments by providing a high-visibility forum for
the dissemination of relevant research and reviews that will prompt new
insights and discussions as well as stimulate new research in the field.
The journal invites basic, applied and methodological content that will aid
the current understanding of animal genetic variability as well as further
its use. GSE publishes results from all levels of study, from the gene to
the quantitative trait, from the individual to the population, the breed or
Material concerning both the biological approach, from molecular genetics to
animal sciences, as well as the mathematical one, from population genetics
to statistics, is welcome.
Specific areas of interest include: gene identification, mapping, QTL and
markers, functional genomics, cytogenetics, genetic diversity of populations
and breeds, genetic evaluation, applied and experimental selection,
statistical methodology of quantitative and mixed inheritance.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to Genetics Selection
Evolution using the online submission system.
