Special Issue "Drosophila: A Model for Genetic Research"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2021).
Interests: developmental genetics and systems biology, with Drosophila as a model system, applied to study gene regulatory networks controlling diversification of muscle and heart cell types in normal and in pathological conditions
Drosophila, with powerfull genetic tools, has a long history as a model organism, and is currently integral to both fundamental and applied biological research. The goal of this Special Issue is to provide examples of how the Drosophila model is applied nowadays in order to progress our understanding of pathogenic mechanisms and normal developmental processes; to show how large and diverse Drosophila model applications are and how much we can learn from. This includes, but is not restricted to, understanding the genome regulation and functions, roles of conserved transcriptional regulators, stem cell biology, and modeling of the disease and aging. I am convinced that with your prominent contributions, this Special Issue will be of interest to a large audience and, at the same time, will be a reference for the Drosophila community.

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 papers will be 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. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
