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.

Jack Dekkers (executive co-Editor) is professor and leader of the Animal Breeding and Genetics Section in the Department of Animal Science at Iowa State University (USA).

 

His areas of research are quantitative genetics and animal breeding with application to swine and poultry genetics, including the use of molecular genetic and genomic information, QTL detection, marker-assisted and genomic selection, design, optimization and economic aspects of breeding strategies, and genetic aspects of residual feed intake in pigs.
