About this Research Topic
This research topic aims to encourage researchers and specialists to share relevant findings, techniques, and perspectives on the use of genomic tools in tropical conditions, in order to contribute to a better understanding of the mechanisms that determine complex traits in a climate change scenario and provide tools that contribute to better management of AnGR, diversity and more sustainable genetic progress.
In this Research Topic, we welcome original research articles, research reports, short communications and reviews on:
- Practical applications of genetics/genomics tools in tropical livestock
- Investigations of genetic diversity, breed composition/population structure and conservation of commercial and wild/creole populations
- Investigations of genetic variants and QTLs related to economically important and ecological traits, response to pathogenic diseases and reproductive ability
- Candidate gene analysis, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and genomic signatures of selection
- Post-GWAS analysis
- Genotype x environment interaction on adaptation to tropical conditions
- Genomic evaluation of local breeds/populations
- Genetic basis of local adaptations and resilience investigations
Keywords: conservation, diversity, genetic evaluations, genetic variants, QTLs local adaptation
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
