Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue will focus on the broad scope of developmental biology. This issue will look especially closely at epigenetics during the developmental stage, with the aim to advance this scientific field and improve the efficiency of animal production and medicine.
Recently, we conducted research on the fat development of gene expression and cell fate determination using pigs to investigate how this could be applied to regenerative medicine. In particular, we are interested in resolving the question of whether fat cells undergo epigenetic gene modification in the developmental environment. We hope this Special Issue Animals will further elucidate the subject and contribute to the scientific knowledge base on animal medicine and production.
We encourage the submission of original research papers and reviews for this Special Issue. Potential topics for submissions include but are not limited to gene expression systems and gene modification by epigenetics, and effect of maternal perinatal environment on their offspring's development.

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.
