Genetics Selection Evolution (GSE) is an international scientific journal of INRA published by BioMed Central Ltd (BMC).

The Animal Genetics INRAE Division is responsible for the journal’s scope of scientific areas and editorial policy. Its editorial board includes several members of GABI.

Genetics Selection Evolution (GSE) (reserved)
Published for the first time in 1969 as the Annales de Génétique et de Sélection Animales, the journal was renamed Genetics Selection Evolution (GSE) in 1983 and since 2009 became an electronic open access journal. The journal is dedicated to the publication of original studies that deal with all issues on genetics and selection of farm and laboratory animals in relation to applications in agronomy.

2019 Impact factor: 3.950

Genetics Selection Evolution invites basic, applied and methodological content that will aid the current understanding and the use of genetic variability in domestic animal species. Although the focus is on domestic animal species, research on other species is invited, if it contributes to the understanding of the use of genetic variability in domestic animals. Genetics Selection Evolution publishes results from all levels of study, from the gene to the quantitative trait, from the individual to the population, the breed or the species. Contributions concerning both the biological approach, from molecular genetics to quantitative genetics, as well as the mathematical approach, from population genetics to statistics, are welcome. Specific areas of interest include but are not limited to: gene and QTL identification, mapping and characterization, analysis of new phenotypes, high-throughput SNP data analysis, functional genomics, cytogenetics, genetic diversity of populations and breeds, genetic evaluation, applied and experimental selection, genomic selection and statistical methodologies for the genetic analysis of phenotypes.

All papers are indexed by PubMed Central immediately after acceptation and also by MEDLINE, Thomson Reuters (ISI), CAS, CAGI and Biosis.

GSE ranks 4th in the “Agriculture, Animal and Dairy Science” category (including 63 journals) and 51st in the "Genetics and Heredity" category (including 177 journals)of the Journal of Citation Reports.
