Genetics Selection Evolution is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal dedicated to original research on all aspects of genetics and selection in domestic animal species and other species providing results of immediate interest for farm animals' genetics.
With the vast, recent increase in the amount and spectrum of available genetic and genomic data, and the development of next-generation sequencing-based approaches, there is an ever-increasing requirement for the collaboration and successful integration of varied results, techniques, and methods in furthering the advancement of the future of animal genetics.
Genetics Selection Evolution 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.
Helene Hayes (executive co-Editor) is researcher in the laboratory of Animal Genetics and Integrative Biology at INRA (French National Institute for Agricultural Research) in Jouy-en-Josas.
Her main focus is animal cytogenetics with a special interest on cattle, goat, sheep and rabbit cytogenetic maps and comparative mapping. Since 2005, she dedicates half her time to the management of the journal Genetics Selection Evolution.
