Genetic changes of managed domestic animals have profoundly influenced the availability of animal-derived foods and enabled the development of human communities and societies. Genetic improvement strategies, originally based on identifying and selecting animals holding desirable traits, evolved over time to encompass reproductive, statistical and molecular tools including artificial insemination and embryo transfer, marker-assisted and genomic selection. Progress accelerated with the development of complementary molecular genetics methods and techniques including the identification of genetic DNA markers and implementation of microarray (chip) technology as well as the development of many high-throughout technologies that are now applied in the field of animal production.

The Frontiers Section on Animal Breeding and Genetics seeks submissions based on the application of traditional and novel genetic technologies to improve animals managed for food production (livestock and aquaculture). The Section particularly welcomes submissions that focus on wider societal, biodiversity and environmental challenges that can be addressed by changes in tools and methods used for animal improvement. We will also consider genetics and breeding of other managed animal populations (e.g., equids, animals kept as companions or for scientific purposes).

The section seeks to publish works that examine:

• Development of breeding goals and programmes that optimise production, improve health, reduce environmental impact and biodiversity loss

• Development of breeding goals and programmes that promote the improvement of the living conditions of livestock keepers around the globe, such as community-based breeding programs

• Quantitative genetic analysis of new populations, traits and/or utilizing new molecular and/or statistical approaches

• Quantitative genetic parameters as determined by genomic measures

• Genetic and breeding techniques that improve animal welfare, stress resilience, health and disease resistance

• The identification of novel traits for selection and the use of novel phenotyping tools, including automated monitoring via sensors, and computer vision of individuals or groups

• The statistical challenges associated with big data and multi-omic analyses; including the use of machine learning, artificial intelligence and genomic prediction

• Genetic diversity, inbreeding, locally adapted breeds, and genebanking

• Societal and ethical evaluation of advances in livestock genetics and breeding programmes

• High-throughput omics applied to animal breeding including genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics and other omics technologies

• Bioinformatics pipelines and web portal development for analysing and visualizing -omics data

Open access statement

Open access logo

Frontiers' philosophy is that all research is for the benefit of humankind. Research is the product of an investment by society and therefore its fruits should be returned to all people without borders or discrimination, serving society universally and in a transparent fashion.

That is why Frontiers provides online free and open access to all of its research publications. For more information on open access click here .

Open access funder and institutional mandates

Frontiers is fully compliant with open access mandates, by publishing its articles under the Creative Commons Attribution licence (CC-BY). Funder mandates such as those by the Wellcome Trust (UK), National Institutes of Health (USA) and the Australian Research Council (Australia) are fully compatible with publishing in Frontiers. Authors retain copyright of their work and can deposit their publication in any repository. The work can be freely shared and adapted provided that appropriate credit is given and any changes specified.

Copyright statement

Under the Frontiers Conditions for Website Use and the Frontiers General Conditions for Authors , authors of articles published in Frontiers journals retain copyright on their articles, except for any third-party images and other materials added by Frontiers, which are subject to copyright of their respective owners. Authors are therefore free to disseminate and re-publish their articles, subject to any requirements of third-party copyright owners and subject to the original publication being fully cited. Visitors may also download and forward articles subject to the citation requirements and subject to any fees Frontiers may charge for downloading licenses. The ability to copy, download, forward or otherwise distribute any materials is always subject to any copyright notices displayed. Copyright notices must be displayed prominently and may not be obliterated, deleted or hidden, totally or partially.

Each Frontiers article strives for the highest quality, thanks to genuinely collaborative interactions between authors, editors and reviewers, who include many of the world's best scientists and scholars. Frontiers is well aware of the potential impact of published research both on future research and on society and, hence, does not support superficial review, light review or no-review publishing models. Research must be certified by peers before entering a stream of knowledge that may eventually reach the public - and shape society. Therefore, Frontiers only applies the most rigorous and unbiased reviews, established in the high standards of the Frontiers Review System. Furthermore, only the top certified research, evaluated objectively through quantitative online article level metrics, is disseminated to increasingly wider communities as it gradually climbs the tiers of the Frontiers Tiering System from specialized expert readership towards public understanding.

Frontiers has a number of procedures in place to support and ensure the quality of the research articles that are published:

Editorial Board Quality

Only leading experts and established members of the research community are appointed to the Frontiers Editorial Boards. Chief Editors, Associate Editors and Review Editors are all listed with their names and affiliations on the Journal pages and are encouraged to publicly list their publication credentials.

Associate Editor Assignment Quality

Associate Editors oversee the peer-review and take the final acceptance decision on manuscripts. Editorial decision power is distributed in Frontiers, because we believe that many experts within a community should be able to shape the direction of science for the benefit of society.

Submitting authors can choose a preferred Associate Editor to handle their manuscript, because they can judge well who would be an appropriate expert in editing their manuscript. There is no guarantee for this preference of choice, Associate Editors can decline invitations any time, and the handling Associate Editor can also be over-ridden by the Chief Editor before she/he is invited to edit the article or at any other stage.

Associate Editors are mandated to only accept to edit a manuscript if they have no conflicts of interest ( as stated here and in their review invitation and assignment emails).

Should it become clear that the Associate Editor has a conflict of interest or is unable to perform the peer-review timely and adequately, a new Associate Editor can be assigned to the manuscript by the Chief Editor, who has full control to intervene in the peer-review process at any time.

The Associate Editor initially checks that the article meets basic quality standards and has no obvious objective errors.

Reviewer Assignment Quality

The Associate Editor can then personally choose and invite the most appropriate reviewers to handle the peer-review of the manuscript, including Review Editors from the board or external reviewers.

The Associate Editor is aided in this by the Frontiers Collaborative Review Forum software and interface, which suggests the most relevant Review Editors based on a match between their expertise and the topic of the manuscript. Associate Editors can however choose any reviewer they deem adequate.

After a certain time frame and if no reviewers have in the meantime been assigned to the manuscript, the Frontiers platform and algorithmic safety-net steps in and invites the most appropriate Review Editors based on constantly updated and improved algorithms that match reviewer expertise with the submitted manuscript.

Review Editors and reviewers are mandated to only accept to review a manuscript if they have no conflicts of interest ( as stated here and in their review invitation and assignment emails).

Frontiers algorithms are constantly fine-tuned to better match Review Editors with manuscripts, and additional checks are being coded into the platform, for example regarding conflicts of interest.

Should it become clear that a particular reviewer has a conflict of interest or is unable to perform the peer-review timely and adequately, he or she shall be replaced with an alternative reviewer by the Associate Editor or the Chief Editor, who will be alerted and has full control to intervene into the peer-review at any time.

Independent Review Stage Quality

In the Independent Review Stage the assigned reviewers perform an in-depth review of the article independently of each other to safeguard complete freedom of opinion.

The reviewers are aided by an online standardized review questionnaire – adopted to article types – with the goal to facilitate rigorous evaluation according to objective criteria and the Frontiers Review Guidelines .

Interactive Review Stage Quality

The Associate Editor assesses the reviews and activates the “Interactive Review” – informing the authors of the extent of revisions that are required to address the reviewers’ comments, and starting the Interactive Discussion Forum where authors and also the reviewers get full access to all review reports.

Manuscript and review quality at this stage are enhanced by allowing authors and reviewers to discuss directly with each other in real-time until they reach consensus and a final version of the manuscript is endorsed by the reviewers.

Reviewer identity is protected at this stage to safeguard complete freedom of opinion.

Reviewers can recommend rejection at this stage if their requests to correct objective errors are not being met by the authors or if they deem the article overall of insufficient quality.

Should a dispute arise, authors or reviewers can trigger an arbitration and will alert the Associate Editor, who can assign more reviewers and/or bring the dispute to the attention of the Chief Editor. The Associate Editor can also weigh in on the discussion and is asked to mediate the process to ensure a constructive revision stage.

Decision Stage Quality

The decision to accept an article needs to be unanimous amongst all reviewers and the handling Associate Editor.

The names of the Associate Editor and reviewers are disclosed on published articles to encourage in depth and rigorous reviews, acknowledge work well done on the article and to bring transparency and accountability into peer-review.

Associate Editors can recommend the rejection of an article to the Chief Editor, who needs to check that the authors’ rights have been upheld during the peer-review process, and who can then ultimately reject the article if it is of insufficient quality, has objective errors or if the authors were unreasonably unwilling to address the points raised during the review.

Chief Editors can at any stage of the peer-review step in to comment on the review process, change assigned editors, assign themselves as a reviewer and even as the handling editor for the manuscript, and therefore have full authority and all the mechanisms to act independently in their online editorial office to ensure quality.

Safeguards against Financial Conflicts of Interest

Only leading researchers acting as Associate Editors, who are not part of Frontiers staff, can make acceptance decisions based on reviews performed by external experts acting as Review Editors or reviewers. None have a financial incentive to accept articles, i.e. they are not paid for their role to act as Associate or Review Editors, and any award scheme is not linked to acceptances of manuscripts.

Chief Editors receive an honorarium if their specialty section or field reaches certain submission levels. However, this honorarium is based on the total number of submitted articles during a calendar year, and not the number of accepted articles. Therefore they also have no financial incentive to accept manuscripts.

Post-Publication Stage Quality

The Frontiers platform enables post-publication commenting and discussions on papers and hence the possibility to critically evaluate articles even after the peer-review process.

Frontiers has a community retraction protocol in place to retract papers where serious concerns have been raised and validated by the community that warrant retraction, including ethical concerns, honest errors or scientific misconduct.

Dear Colleagues,

Domestic animals provide people with essential resources, including meat, eggs, milk, fur, etc. Numerous studies, including pan-genomic, genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, epigenomic, metabolomic and phenomic studies, have been used to illustrate biological processes, phenotypic formations, and evolutionary events in domestic animals. This Special Issue focuses on the latest advances and insights in animal genetics and breeding. Research on all farm animals will be welcome, including ruminants (cattle, sheep, and goats), pigs, horses, poultry, and fish. Research on aspects of animal genetics, breeding and reproduction, as well as other topics, will be considered. These topics could include molecular genetics, biodiversity, life cycles, and functional gene and regulatory mechanisms in complex traits. We hope that this Special Issue will provide a better understanding of animal genetics, development, and evolution, as well as offering some new approaches in animal breeding and enhancing the productivity of farm animals.

The aim of this Special Issue of Biology is to collate the latest advances and insights from the research fields of genetics, regulatory mechanisms, and breeding methods of domestic animals.

Animal Breeding and Genetics

Research in animal breeding and genetics is primarily concerned with the development and implementation of genetic evaluation programs in swine, beef and dairy cattle. This program is a balance between theoretical development of the methodologies that have the greatest potential for rapid genetic change; and, working with the leaders of the animal industry and breed associations to create efficient systems for field applications. There are also ongoing research projects which combine genetics with physiology, nutrition and meats. The group collaborates with and provides methodology for genetic/genomic evaluations to the biggest animal genetic associations/companies in the US Including: the Holstein Association (dairy), Angus Association (beef), Pig Improvement Company and Smithfield (pigs), Cobb-Vantress (broilers), Zoetis (beef and dairy), etc. The group actively collaborates with scientists around the world.

ASAS Centennial Paper: Animal breeding research and the Journal of Animal Science: A century of co-evolution


Animal breeding reports in the Journal of Animal Science (JAS) and in its predecessor, Proceedings of the American Society of Animal Production, were counted and categorized. In 22 volumes of the Proceedings of the American Society of Animal Production, 155 articles had animal breeding content, of which 54% were research reports, 17% extension communications, and 28% syntheses or reviews. Several of the latter featured advice from the livestock industry to the scientific community. Thirty-one percent of articles concerned swine, whereas beef cattle, dairy cattle, and sheep each accounted for an additional 20%. In the 67 yr of JAS publication, 3,045 research papers were identified with animal breeding content, nearly half of them published since 1990. Growth in publication output was modest during the 1950s, robust in the 1960s through 1980s, moderate in the 1990s, and static in the 2000s. Important topics included genetic resource evaluation (a subject in 55% of all manuscripts), genetic parameter estimation, selection programs, and nonrandom mating systems. Maternal effects and genotype x environment interactions were featured in 17 and 15% of all manuscripts, respectively, whereas 6% dealt with a simply inherited trait. Only 4% of manuscripts included economic analysis of a breeding program or intervention. Interest in molecular biology and biometry has surged in the 1990s and 2000s. Approximately 50% of all papers involved cattle, a fifth of which concerned dairy cattle or beef x dairy crossbreds. A quarter of papers concerned swine, 15% concerned sheep, and 3% considered laboratory rodents, with the proportional contribution of sheep research decreasing across time. Authors from the Midwestern and Southern sections of the American Society of Animal Science had greater proportional contributions than Western and Northeastern section authors, and contributions of university and state experiment station authors outnumbered those of USDA-ARS authors. The proportional contribution of international authors increased across time, reaching 45% for the 2000s, as that of university and experiment station authors decreased and that of USDA-ARS authors remained fairly constant. Subjective analysis suggested substantial levels of creativity, innovation, and cooperation in JAS animal breeding research, a strong international perspective, but also a marked degree of imitation and repetition in subject matter content.
