About this book

The complete mapping of the horse genome sequence makes a significant contribution to understanding equine biology. Equine Genomics provides a timely comprehensive overview of equine genomic research. Chapters detail key accomplishments and the current state of research, as well as looking forward to possible applications of genomic technologies to horse breeding, health, and welfare. Seamlessly edited by a leading Equine Genomics professor, Equine Genomics delivers a global overview of the topic and is an indispensable source of information for anyone with an interest in this increasingly important field of study.
