The horse is a hoofed, herbivorous mammal belonging to the family Equidae. Domesticated around 6,000 years ago, this animal played an important role in human exploration of novel territories. Nowadays there are more than 300 breeds, developed for various needs in transportation and agriculture. As well as their role in sport and entertainment, horses take part in police work and therapy. The horse is used in biomedical research as a model organism. Horses are known to share with humans more than 90 hereditary diseases, which makes the task of mapping the horse genome significant for veterinary science and medicine.

The horse genome has 32 chromosomes containing 2.7 Gb with 20,000 protein-coding genes. The reference proteome is derived from the genome sequence published in 2009
