About this Research Topic
Across the world, students are undertaking key research as part of their education in Livestock Genomics; however, most of this work is not communicated to a wider audience. We recognise that this is because many student researchers find the thought of peer-review daunting. Here, peer-review is considered a collaborative process and our interactive peer-review is tailored to provide hands-on guidance and constructive feedback to researchers. Our Topic Editors are committed to the development of emerging talents and want to see student researchers strive for success at publications.
The research presented in this collection highlights the quality and diversity of student researchers across the field of Genetics, with a focus on Livestock Genomics. We welcome contributions in the form of original research, review, mini review, case report, hypothesis and theory, perspective, both experimental and computational studies that cover, but are not limited to, following themes:
1. Identification of genes and genetic variants related to complex traits.
2. Characterization of genes and biological pathways underlying economically important traits.
3. Incorporation of genomic information into genetic evaluations and selection approaches, as well as the development of mating strategies for better exploring genetic diversity and non-additive genetic effects.
4. Development of genomic tools and sequence information for agriculturally relevant species.
This Research Topic will help to identify emerging leaders and allow the community to follow the aspiring careers of emerging, talented researchers. #EmergingTalentsIn
