Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Reproduction is a fundamental feature of all living creatures. The biological study of reproduction is a hotly debated issue. Emerging topics include spermatogenesis, oogenesis, the biology of embryonic stem cells, environmental effects on reproductive potential, adverse intrauterine/gametogenesis environment and gamete/embryo-fetal origins of diseases, endocrine disruptor on the health of parents and offspring, and epigenetic effects on reproductive and developmental processes. Most functional organs and bodily systems initiate to develop early in gestation but become fully mature only after birth. Embryonic and fetal periods are clearly vulnerable to environmental factors, despite the short periods of exposure. Prenatal and early postnatal events increase the risk of some diseases in later life including diabetes, coronary heart disease and hypertension, etc. This Special Issue will focus on the physiology and pathophysiology of gametogenesis and embryogenesis, assisted reproductive technology, and, gamete/embryo-fetal origins of diseases.
