Equine genetics has long been studied as a means of improving traits such as performance capabilities and coat color in horses. Dramatic advances in genomics and high–throughput DNA analysis technologies have significantly increased our understanding of the molecular biology of growth, development, and disease.Equine Genomics focuses on the significant advances in genome–mapping and genomic technologies and their applications to the improvement of equine traits of economic significance.Equine Genomics provies broad–ranging coverage of advances in genome science as applied to horses. The opening chapters provide Strong foundational information on defining the equine genome, the development of genetic linkage, physical and comparative maps, as well as whole genome sequences. The following several chapters then look at the underlying genetics of key traits, such as reproduction, coat color, performance, and a variety of key diseases impacting horses. The final chapter looks at equine mitochondrial DNA and its implication on equid evolution and genetic diversity.

A timely and vitally important resource,Equine Genomics, is an essential title of animal scientists, genomic researchers, veterinary scientists, equine breeders, and industry personnel.
