Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A molecular marker can be defined as a genomic locus, detected through probe or specific starters (primer) which, in virtue of its presence, distinguishes unequivocally the chromosomic trait which it represents as well as the flanking regions at the 3’ and 5’ extremity. Thus, these markers, generally have no reference to the activity of specific genes, but are directly based on highlighting differences (polymorphisms) within a nucleic sequence in different individuals, as a result of insertion, deletions, translocations, duplications, point mutations, etc. Molecular marker is probably the more powerful tool developed at the end of last century. Thousands of them are now known, thus enabling the study of a much larger number of genes that code for plant expression, as well as for other non-coding segments of the chromosome. Thanks to them genetic maps have been developed and their position in the genome is known. They are widely used in several aspects from variety identification, to gene detection passing from the assessing of genetic diversity and its partition within and among populations. More and more, molecular marker studies are being used to identify diversity “hotspots” for in situ conservation.
Several molecular markers typologies are developed and each typology has its own property with advantages and disadvantages.
The aim of this special issues is to bring together researches addressed to assess by molecular markers the genetic diversity present in the germplasm. But also addressed to evaluate and develop the most suitable marker(s) to be use as well as the statistical analysis which their use imply.

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Diversity 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 800 CHF (Swiss Francs).
