We are pleased to announce a forthcoming Special Issue of Diversity (IF = 2.465, a full open access journal, ISSN 1424-2818) that focuses on generation of genome-wide genetic data and evolutionary analyses.
With advancement of sequencing technology, we can generate different types of large-scale genetic data in any organism of interest. Large-scale data in genomic and taxonomic coverage can be used for evolutionary analyses for investigating characteristics of evolutionary patterns of genomes and resolving phylogenetic relationships of species, populations, and genes. Use of unprecedented amounts of data was expected to provide fine-scale resolution. However, it also created challenges in compiling and analysing large-scale data. This Special Issue provides an exciting opportunity to showcase the studies that generate genome-wide data, elucidate evolutionary patterns using genome-wide data, and highlight the problems that arise from the use of large amounts of genetic data. In particular studies focusing the following topics are welcome.
- Generation of genomic and transcriptomic data as well as DNA methylome data of non-model organisms
- Generation of various -omics data such as epigenome data (DNA methylome, CHIP-seq based histone modification data), translatome, and interactome of model organisms
- Methodologies or tools for integrating, analysing and interpreting these -omics data
- Evolutionary analyses elucidating patterns of genome structures, e.g., large indels, transposable elements, and GC content and natural selection
- Methodologies or tools for analysing genome sequences and mining databases and interpreting them for the evolutionary analyses
- Phylogenetic analyses of species, populations, and genes/gene families
- Methodologies or tools for preparing the data and choosing samples and loci for phylogenetic analyses

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. Diversity 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 1900 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.
