Due to the accessibility and generalization of the CRISPR-Cas9 system in any laboratory setting, in recent years, it has seen tremendous demand for the understanding of various diseases at the level of molecular genetics. Zebrafish has evolved as a crucial model organism that has been utilized in almost all fields of biomedical research. In particular, forward genetics, performed using zebrafish development, has been fruitful in identifying genes that give rise to distinct phenotypes when functionally abnormal. At present, it is possible to pinpoint the phenotype in response to a single gene mutation, with the discovery of the most advanced “reverse-genetics” tool, which becomes much more powerful in a clinical setting when combined with the depth of next-generation sequencing technology.
In this Special Issue, we invite manuscripts in the format of a research article or a review in the field of zebrafish modeling in genetics and genomics to improve human diseases.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
