Animal Genetics covers the fields of immunogenetics, biochemical genetics and molecular genetics.
Animal Genetics reports current research on genetic variation at the level of single genes, their products and functions in economically important and domestic species of animals. In addition to the conventional areas of blood groups, protein polymorphism and gene mapping, the Journal encompasses advances in rapidly developing areas such as DNA polymorphism.
Animal Genetics publishes full-length papers, short communications for extra rapid publication, and commissioned and submitted mini-reviews as well as articles on technical advances relevant to the subject. Brief reports of molecular genetic markers are also accepted for rapid publication, and are an increasingly popular feature of the Journal. Animal Genetics is the official journal of the International Society for Animal Genetics.
