High-throughput molecular technologies ("omics") can help to decipher  the contributions of different physiological systems and identify  candidate molecules that are representative of different physiological  pathways thereby allowing the discovery of biomarkers. Notably, the  omics technologies along with and computational methods, bioprospecting,  and artificial intelligence will continue to lead to better  understanding of biological mechanisms that are responsible for physical  attributes, or phenotypes. Research breakthroughs obtained through  these technologies can be used to enhance productivity of food animals,  meet the increasing demand for animal-sourced foods, enhance  high-quality nutrient availability, ensure nutrient safety, mitigate the  effects of climate variability, and result in new technologies that  provide continued improvement in food security worldwide. Such  breakthroughs are an urgent necessity because over the past 50 years,  there has been an unprecedented increase in the world’s population,  which will reach ten billion by the year 2050. Innovative and  technological advancements that enhance all aspects of food production  will arise from basic, fundamental research. Besides food, animal  by-products have found many applications in the fields of  pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and household and industrial products.  Hence, the need to ameliorate the productivity, reproductivity, growth  performance, and disease resistance in animals has created a worldwide  interest in gaining a deeper understanding of animal biology,  biotechnology and genomics, and proteomics.

The present volume  thoroughly discusses the omics studies in domestic and non-domestic  animals and their role in mitigation of various challenges ahead.

The volume thus focuses on
i. Omics (genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolonomics) technologies in identifying, characterizing biodiversity
ii. Role of molecular techniques for improvement of domestic and non-domestic organisms
iii.  Animal and alternative model systems (using stem cells, tissue  engineering, cell free systems, 3D platforms etc.) for studying life  phenomena
iv. Genetically modified organisms as factories for the products
