Chapter synopsis: The exploration of genomic variation is central to advances in animal genetic studies. Furthermore, the ability to access and analyse differences among animal genomes is an essential prerequisite to understanding the manifestation of disease, variation in production traits, demographic history and the impact of selection. This chapter reviews the tools and resources currently used for exploring genetic variation in the sheep genome, which will speed discovery and innovation for scientists working with sheep either as a production livestock species or as a biomedical model. The next steps in annotating the sheep genome are also explored, along with the expected outcomes of the next stage of research.
