Multiple signaling networks exist to take in environmental information and adapt the genome in response to these environmental cues. In extreme environmental conditions, this epigenetic information can be transmitted to naive progeny to induce phenotypic changes. Transgenerational epigenetic inheritance has been known about for decades, but the molecular mediators of this non-genetic transmission of information are just now beginning to be deciphered. In this Special Issue, experts in the field of transgenerational epigenetic inheritance will describe some of the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance phenomena and delineate some of the molecular mediators of this non-genetic inheritance, including chromatin modifications, non-coding RNA, prions, and microbiota. Because none of these epigenetic cues function in isolation, papers will describe how these non-genetic cues can communicate with each other to help to reinforce epigenetic signals and detail some of the common and unique characteristics of transgenerational epigenetic inheritance paradigms.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Epigenomes is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
