Animal Biotechnology

Editor in Chief
Lawrence Schook, University of Illinois

Animal Biotechnology is the first international journal to cover the identification and manipulation of genes and their products, stressing applications in domesticated animals and model organisms. The journal publishes full-length articles, short research communications, as well as appropriate reviews focusing on animal genomics and enabling technologies such as germline manipulation and cloning.

Animal Biotechnology publishes manuscripts that address all aspects of animal genomics ranging from mapping, DNA sequencing and functional genomics. The journal provides a forum for regulatory or scientific issues related to cell and molecular biology, immunogenetics, transgenic animals, and microbiology.
