1 Introduction to Animal Molecular Breeding
Animal Molecular Breeding is an open access, peer reviewed journal published online by AnimalSci Publisher. The journal is publishing all the latest and outstanding research articles, letters and reviews in all areas of animal molecular breeding, containing transgenic breeding and marker assisted breeding, particularly publishing innovative research findings in the basic and applied fields of molecular genetics and novel techniques for improvement, applications of molecular enhanced products, as well as the significant evaluation of their related application field.

2 Aims and Scope
Animal Molecular Breeding is committed to publishing and disseminating all the latest and outstanding research articles, letters and reviews in all areas of animal molecular breeding, including genetics, breeding, as well as the related field.

All papers chosen for publications should be creative reviews and opinions or innovative research work in the field of animal breeding, including animal transgene, molecular genetics, genetic diversity, reproduction, advanced breeding technologies, evolution of domestic animals, and other related information about animal molecular breeding. The primary criterion for publication is new insights that are not only of broad interest to animal geneticists and breeders, teachers/students/researchers engaged in animal breeding, but are also appropriate for R & D personnel as well as readers interested in genetics and breeding.
