Aims & scope

Genetics Selection Evolution is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal dedicated to original research on all aspects of genetics and selection in domestic animal species and other species providing results of immediate interest for farm animals' genetics.

With the vast, recent increase in the amount and spectrum of available genetic and genomic data, and the development of next-generation sequencing-based approaches, there is an ever-increasing requirement for the collaboration and successful integration of varied results, techniques, and methods in furthering the advancement of the future of animal genetics.

Genetics Selection Evolution focuses on contributing to these developments by providing a high-visibility forum for the dissemination of relevant research and reviews that will prompt new insights and discussions as well as stimulate new research in the field.

GSE is delighted to welcome three new Associate Editors

We are pleased to announce the appointment of three new Associate Editors to the GSE Editorial Board: Ismo Strandén, Henk Bovenhuis and Hans D Daetwyler.

Ismo Strandén
Ismo Strandén is Professor in Computational Genetics at the Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) in the group of Animal and Plant Genetics and Breeding (Jokioinen, Finland). He has a wide range of expertise in genetics and bioinformatics, including animal breeding and genetics, animal genomics, applied and statistical genetics, longitudinal data analysis, simulation studies, and Bayesian analysis. Currently, his research focuses on genomic evaluation in dairy cattle, selection for improved production traits and against genetic diseases in various farm species and developing strategies using new technologies for genetic improvement and genomic evaluation of quantitative traits. He has a long experience in developing software used by animal breeding industry for genetic evaluation and pedigree analysis.
Hans D Daetwyler
Hans D Daetwyler holds a joint appointment as Senior Researcher at the Biosciences Research Division, Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources and La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. His area of expertise is on quantitative genetics and statistical genomics in plants and animals. His research interests cover a wide field of topics: genomic prediction of traits to genetically improve individuals; quality control, variant (SNPs, indels and structural variants) calling, and use of whole-genome and RNA sequence data; haplotyping and imputation methods; simulation of novel phenotypic and genomic plant breeding programs including modeling of long-term genetic gain and diversity.
Henk Bovenhuis
Henk Bovenhuis is Associate Professor at Wageningen University (The Netherlands) and works in the Animal Breeding and Genetics group as a quantitative geneticist. His research interests range from genomic prediction and genome-wide association studies to the optimization of animal breeding programs. He has a special interest in the genetic background of bovine milk composition.
