Journal of Animal Genetics, Transgenesis and Zoonoses

Free Publication in 2017

Current issue: 2017

Journal of Animal Genetics, Transgenesis and Zoonoses (JAGTZ) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal that publishes novel studies, opinions and reviews to advance the science of animal genetics, transgenesis, zoonoses and aquaculture, using a multidisciplinary approach and methods involving genetics, genomics, microbiology, virology, bacteriology, parasitology, immunology, epidemiology, transgenic and genome edited animals, etc. Research and discussions that promote the "One Health" concept are greatly welcome. JAGTZ covers studies on all species including domestic animals, wildlife and aquatic animals. 

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Animal Genetics: molecular genetics; immunogenetics; molecular biology; functional genomics; mapping of genes, traits and QTLs; genetic diversity of economically important and/or domesticated animals. 
  • Transgenesis: transgenic and genome editing of economically important and domesticated animals; cloning; breeding of domestic and aquatic animals; physiology, biochemistry, development genomics, genetics behavior, and exploitation of transgenic animals.
  • Zoonoses: pathogenesis, etiology, diagnosis, immunology, epidemiology and control of bacterial, viral, parasitic, mycotic diseases; veterinary and public health; comparative medicine; modeling; monitor and regulatory systems and policies; One Health. 

JAGTZ will provide a valuable forum for cross-fertilization of ideas and techniques in the areas of animal genetics, transgenic technology and zoonotic diseases. JAGTZ publishes research articles, reviews, communications, case reports, opinion articles, comments, short notes, book reviews, etc. Authors should present their results as outlined in the section Instructions for Authors. Manuscripts should advance the scientific knowledge and be authored by scientists with expertise in the areas described above.

The 8th International Conference on Emerging Zoonoses

May 7-10, 2017, Manhattan, KS, USA

The 8th International Conference on Emerging Zoonoses in Kansas follows seven successful conferences, each of which provided an interdisciplinary forum for physicians, veterinarians, epidemiologists, immunologists, virologists, microbiologists, public health experts and others concerned with the ever increasing problems associated with the transmission of infectious diseases from animals to humans and the economic impact of transboundary diseases. We encourage you to join us in Manhattan, Kansas in May.

Biography of the Editor-in-Chief

SuniJuergen A. Richt received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich and PhD in Virology and Immunology from the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen (1988), both in Germany. Afterwards, he completed three years of postdoctoral/residency studies at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, USA. Next, Dr. Richt returned for eight years to the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen as a junior faculty to establish his own research program. He later served for eight years as a Veterinary Medical Officer at the National Animal Disease Center (USDA-ARS) in Ames, Iowa.

Dr. Richt came to Kansas State University in 2008 as The Regents Distinguished Professor and Kansas Bioscience Eminent Scholar. In 2010, he became Director of the Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence for Emerging and Zoonotic Animal Diseases (CEEZAD), which is working with Principal Investigators in 16 different universities, as well as various industrial partners. His work in veterinary microbiology has focused mainly on the animal-human interface, called “One Health” that links human medicine, veterinary medicine and the environment. Dr. Richt has edited several books, published more than 190 peer-reviewed articles and raised more than $33 million in grants for veterinary research.
