Special Issue "Reproductive Biology"
A special issue of Biology (ISSN 2079-7737).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2017).
Recent advances in the field of female reproductive biology have been underpinned by a greater understanding of the inter-dependency between the ovarian follicle and oocyte, and the interactions between the oviduct/uterine environment and embryo. These new insights have resulted in the refinement of current artificial reproductive technologies and subsequent improvements in oocyte and embryo quality.
For this special issue, we invite review and research articles on aspects of follicular maturation, attainment of oocyte developmental competency, early embryonic development and embryo interactions with the oviduct or uterus, as well as recent advancements in in vitro maturation or in vitro fertilisation systems.
