Call for Paper - Animal Genetics Journal
Artificial Intelligence for Genomic Selection of Domestic Animals
September 1, 2022

With the rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI), numerous machine learning methods have been applied to a huge variety of aspects in genomics and genetics, such as estimating breeding values by AI technology. How to select the ideal domestic animals, e.g., livestock, horse, and companion animal is a big challenge. We believe that the applications of AI techniques in genetics and breeding will have unexpected effects, especially when there are intricate relationships between the objects being analyzed.

Animal Genetics is calling for submissions of original studies about artificial intelligence for genomic selection of domestic animals. New methods for rapid, efficient and significant improvement of genetic progress in domestic animals are welcome. Reviews which are well summarized and of far-sighted prospects on the field are also encouraged. The topics about Artificial Intelligence for Genomic Selection of domestic animals including but not limited to:

  • Development and applications of AI-based algorithms and models for animal genetics and breeding
  • Phenome measuring with AI techniques
  • Characterize genomes of livestock with AI techniques
  • Feature selection (extract genetic information that contributes greatly) with AI techniques
  • Prediction or classification of economic phenotypes with AI techniques

Guest Editors:

Prof. Xiaolei Liu
Huazhong Agricultural University, China
Prof. Zhiyan Zhang
Jiangxi Agricultural University, China

Deadline for submission: September 1, 2022

Each manuscript should be written according to the Instructions to Authors and should be submitted electronically via our online submission system. Please remember to indicate that your manuscript is intended for this special issue in the submission process. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed according to the policy of the journal.
