Global Journal of Animal Breeding and Genetics (GJABG) is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that provides rapid publication (monthly) of articles in all areas of Animal Breeding and Genetics related disciplines.The role of the GJABG is to inform its readers of ideas, opinions, developments and key issues in Animal Breeding and Genetics - clinical, practical and scientific - stimulating interest, debate and discussion amongst scientists of all disciplines.
Animal genetics is a branch of veterinary medicine that studies heredity and variation in animals. It is based on general genetic principles and concepts and it mainly uses the hybrid, cytological, population, ontogenetic, mathematical-statistical, and twin methods of general genetics. Animals have mainly independent inheritance of characters because they have a large number of chromosomes. The principal method of studying the inheritance of characters is hybrid analysis; this helps to determine the nature of the inheritance of many morphological, physiological, and biochemical traits, which frequently depend only on one of several pairs of genes. Research is continuing on the correlation between these genes, on the one hand, and productivity, fertility, and viability of animals, on the other. Considerable attention is devoted to the biochemical properties of animal milk and blood, specifically to immunogenetics, the results of which are used to check on the pedigree of purebred animals, determine their exact origins in disputed cases, and so forth. By studying the genes responsible for biochemical properties, it is possible to analyze the structure of breeds their lines and species and to judge the degree of their uniformity. The morphological defects and underdevelopment of individual organs in animals have been explained in genetic terms. Many developmental defects (such as a bulldog appearance, dwarfishness, and dropsy in calves, rabbits, and other animals) are known to be determined by so-called lethal and semi lethal genes. The individuals bearing these genes either die or have low viability.

Submission of an Article
Submitted articles should have a 300 words summary/abstract, separate from the main text. The summary should provide a brief account of the work by clearly stating the purpose of the study and the methodology adopted, highlighting major findings briefly. The text may contain a few short subheadings of no more than 40 characters each.
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this tim
