Aims and scope

The International Journal of Animal Breeding and Genetics aims to publish original and cutting-edge research articles on all animal breeding-related aspects of the life sciences. Emphasis will be placed on studies involving farm animals such as cattle, buffaloes, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, and poultry. Studies for the improvement of human health using animal models may also be considered.
