Prof. Simianer is co-editor of a special issue of Animal Frontiers on the topic ,Animal Breeding in the Genomics Era'

The January issue (1/2016 ) of the magazine , Animal Frontiers ' provides an excellent overview of the current state of implementation of genomic methods in all areas of animal breeding. Renowned authors, among others the ,inventors' of genomic selection Theo Meuwissen, Ben Hayes and Mike Goddard, describe the status quo of genomic selection in different farm animal species. In addition other aspects such as the use of genome information in phenotype prediction and for conservation of genetic variability are addressed. In another article fundamental characteristics of innovation processes in animal breeding are discussed. Prof. Henner Simianer and Dr. Noelia Ibanez Escriche (Spain) were the responsible guest editors of the current issue. All article can be downloaded here for free. more...
