Textbooks of general genetics rarely mention horses. Horse breeders and those taking courses in equine studies do not find it easy to relate fruit flies, pea plants and mice to practical horse breeding. There is therefore a need for a book which provides an overview of genetic principles using horses as the primary examples. This book aims to fill this gap. The author, who has both practical and academic experience in this subject, has distilled facts and ideas to provide relevant examples in a jargon-free way, while still maintaining scientific rigor. Our knowledge of horse genes lags well behind that of other domestic animals, and the number of well-understood examples is limited. The author thus concentrates on topics such as coat color, where information is well documented, to illustrate general genetic principles. Nevertheless, the book is comprehensive in scope, covering additional topics such as parentage testing, medical genetics and gene mapping. Overall, the book is unique in providing an up-to-date review of current knowledge of horse genetics. It will be invaluable for students of equine studies, animal breeding and veterinary science, as well as for horse breeders, professionals and enthusiastic amateurs working with horses.

Analysis of the equine genome began just over a decade ago, culminating in the recent complete sequencing of the horse genome. The availability of the equine whole genome sequence represents the successful completion of an important era of equine genome analysis, and the beginning of a new era where the sequence information will catalyze the development of new tools and resources that will permit study of a range of traits that are economically important and are significant to equine health and welfare. 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. Equine Genomics delivers a global overview of the topic and is seamlessly edited by a leading equine genomics researcher. Equine Genomics is an indispensible source of information for anyone with an interest in this increasingly important field of study, including equine genomic researchers, clinicians, animal science professionals and equine field veterinarians.
