Special Issue "Advances in Companion Animal Genetic Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 11 December 2023 | Viewed by 3738
Interests: inherited or genetic diseases in animals; lysosomal storage disorders; pathogenesis; diagnostic; therapeutic; preventive methods; nutrition in captive and free-range wild animals
Companion animal genetics—both canine and feline—now represents a rapidly developing field, for which further advances can be expected in the near future. Research pertaining to genetic diseases in companion animals is not only directly utilized for understanding, diagnosing, treating, and preventing such diseases, it is also crucial for furnishing real-world evidence in translation medicine and establishing animal models of human diseases. For this Special Issue, we welcome original papers, short communications, and reviews covering areas related to genetic diseases in dogs and cats, as well as other companion animals (e.g., exotic animals). Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the identification of causative mutations, elucidation of pathological mechanisms, clinical analysis, novel diagnostic methods, molecular epidemiology and prevention, and therapeutic development. We are seeking manuscripts that enhance the current understanding of complex genetic disorders in companion animals. We look forward to hearing from many talented researchers.

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. Animals is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
