The development of molecular genetics in recent decades has had a significant impact on the adaptation of animal production to a number of big challenges. There are needs for the sustainable production of animal food, increasing the quality of animal products, improving the welfare of domestic animals, automatization (robotization) of conventional production technologies, the need to reduce the negative impact of animal production on the environment is of great importance. The development of new methodological (analytical) methods of molecular genetics provides a powerful "tool" for numerous aspects of the adaptation and development of animal production. Advanced molecular genetics enables direct and complete understanding of phylogenetic processes within and between breeds, the improvement of selection efficiency, direct and indirect selection for preferred genotypes and traits, elimination (suppression) of certain genetic diseases, improvement of breeds fitness and resistance traits, and much more.
This Special Issue focuses on the advances in molecular genetics in domestic animals, the development and application of new analytical and methodological approaches in the field, various molecular genetic marker systems, computer-assisted analysis (software), and more.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Agriculture is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
