The knowledge and implementation of microRNA expression profiles in disease diagnosis and target gene identification have grown exponentially. MicroRNAs as markers of disease diagnosis and prognosis, and as new therapeutic targets have been substantially explored in human and animals. Several target gene sites have been identified experimentally and some are predicted computationally in some livestock and pet species, and polymorphism at these sites is viewed as a basis for selection. While in the medical sciences, use of miRNA as a biomarker has gained impetus, the accomplishment in animal science remains still below adequacy. Below we review the history of its discovery in various healthy and diseased tissues and body fluids that could pave a way for improvement of health and productivity in animals.

Keywords: MicroRNA, Livestock, and Biomarker
