Special Issue Information
Rapid advances in genomics are creating unprecedented opportunities to advance our understanding of the biology of polar organisms. From reduced representation sequencing through transcriptomics, metagenomics, and proteomics to whole-genome and methylome sequencing, advanced molecular tools are providing increasingly detailed insights into patterns of biological diversity, adaptation to extreme environments, and responses to environmental change. This Special Issue of Genes is associated with a topic workshop on Polar Genomics organized by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Science Foundation) Priority Programme 1158, “Antarctic Research with Comparative Investigations in Arctic Ice Areas”, which is planned for May 2022. We invite articles that use genome-scale datasets to address relevant topics including but not restricted to the ones listed below.
With best wishes,
Prof. Dr. Joe Hoffman
Prof. Dr. Melody Clark
Dr. Svenja Heesch
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. Genes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
