Featured article: Effect of dietary supplementation with insect fats on growth performance, digestive efficiency and health of rabbits

Our research team is focused on the evaluation of the effects of dietary insect meal inclusion on animal health and performance, gut health modifications and food products quality in monogastric farm animals. Considering the complementary and multidisciplinary expertise in animal production and veterinary sciences of our researchers, we currently propose an integrated approach to assess the impact of insect meal utilization by the innovative association of the well-known zootechnical (animal performance and nutrient digestibility) and nutritional (food products quality) aspects with the more recently investigated gut health parameters (mucosal inflammatory response, morphology, mucin composition and microbiota/microbiome).

Aims and scope

Journal of Animal Science and Biotechnology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that encompasses a wide range of research areas including animal genetics, reproduction, nutrition, physiology, biochemistry, biotechnology, feedstuffs and animal products. The journal publishes original and novel research articles and reviews mainly involved in pigs, poultry, beef cattle, cows, goats and sheep, but the studies involving aquatic and laboratory animal species that address fundamental questions related to livestock are also welcome.
