The reliability of DNA barcoding relies on three main pillars which are i) a strict standardization of analytical procedures, ii) an efficient computerization of sequence data through accurate bioinformatics approaches and iii) an integration of different disciplines to provide solid reference publicly available databases for species assignation.
This special issue is devoted to the advances in DNA barcoding to address all the aspects related to biodiversity with the main goals of i) elucidating the analytical and bioinformatics advances currently available for this molecular approach; ii) defining the new frontiers of application in the context of biodiversity and biomonitoring and iii) encouraging the population of public genetic archives to also include those neglected groups of animal and plant biodiversity.
I cordially invite researchers working actively in these fields to submit their original research manuscripts to this special issue.Dr. Andrea Galimberti
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.
