Next-generation sequencing has changed the study of genetics. NGS technology is predicted to be significant in veterinary care and animal husbandry. With the development of modern techniques, genomes can now be sequenced considerably more quickly and accurately. In the current review, we detail the many sequencing techniques that are accessible and also go over a few biological topics where using next-generation sequencing might lead to whole new directions in veterinary research. Large volumes of genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic data may now be analysed by researchers thanks to the advent of high throughput molecular technologies and accompanying bioinformatics. The volume of DNA sequence information that can be generated using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology is a glaring illustration of this stage. The identification and quantification of proteins in a given sample have also been made easier by recent advancements in high-precision mass spectrometry and protein and peptide separation efficiency. The way biological and evolutionary processes are investigated at the molecular level is beginning to change due to these technological advancements, which are also being utilised to research infectious illnesses in animals. To better understand how next-generation sequencing functions and how it might be applied to veterinary medicine for the sake of disease management and control, this chapter focuses on presenting existing and projected insights.
