Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Here, we would like to introduce our special issue on molecular research in a broad spectrum of avian genetics. Everything from molecular evolution and adaptation to bioinformatic analysis to host–pathogen interaction, among others, this Special Issue will address every facet covering, but not limited to, molecular genetics, cytogenetics and genomics in wild and domesticated birds. Since the 1930s, when the molecular techniques were first introduced to study biochemical genetics and immunogenetics in birds, there has been substantial accumulation of methodology and knowledge that brought avian biology to the molecular research level. The molecular mechanisms underlying physiology and ecology of birds can now be thoroughly studied in order to create novel approaches for both understanding of these feathered creatures and management of their conservation, reproduction, illness and commercial utilization (as an important source of eggs and meat for human consumption). General and specific contributions into the genetic mechanisms and evolution of molecular biological processes in the avian body are invited. Reviews and research articles pertaining to the broad area of avian molecular genetics are also welcomed.

Dr. Michael N. Romanov
Guest Editor

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.
