Animal Genetics and Diseases: Advances in Farming and Livestock Systems

About this Research Topic

Proceedings of the new Animal Genetics and Disease Wellcome Genome Campus meeting:

The new Animal Genetics and Disease 2017 conference committee has organised a Research Topic for the proceedings of this inaugural conference. The meeting will bring together specialists working on the interface between genomics, genetic engineering and infectious disease with the aims of improving animal and human health and welfare. This conference is funded by Advanced Courses and Scientific Conference at the Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, UK.

The conference will highlight breakthroughs in genomic technologies that are rapidly increasing our understanding of the fundamental role that host and pathogen genetics play in infections and epidemics. This Research Topic will focus on how infections spread and how they further affect the productivity of livestock systems and food supply chains. Thanks to technological advances, we now have the tools for real-time surveillance of zoonoses affecting wildlife, farm animals and animal-to-human disease transmission.

The proceedings are designed to provide a forum for specialists to contribute scientific articles in this growing field. We welcome articles in the following broad themes:
• Genetics of the immune response and disease resistance
• Genetically engineered livestock (including genome editing)
• Quantitative genetics and epigenetics applied to disease
• Epidemiology and pathogen evolution
• Bioinformatics, comparative and functional genomics
• Precision medicine of animal companions
• Societal issues and challenges, including animal welfare and regulation

We encourage submissions from researchers, breeding companies and technical specialists interested in disseminating and learning the latest cutting-edge techniques and methodologies across model species, wildlife, livestock and farm animals.


Keywords: Animal genomics, host-pathogen, epidemiology, livestock, farming


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.
