We anticipate that this new alliance between The Korean Society of Animal Science and Technology and BioMed Central will elevate our journal one step higher, and facilitate easier access for those overseas as well as domestic researchers, who in turn will support us to contribute updated research outcomes in this field. We cordially invite all of you to participate and submit the results of your research so that everyone can learn and strive towards the goals that we all share.
