Special Issue "Biological Diversity Assessed by Molecular Methods"
A special issue of Diversity (ISSN 1424-2818).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2010).
Interests: population genetics; genetic diversity of livestock; biodiversity; molecular evolution; domestication; molecular analysis of ancient DNA; breeding strategies; genetic disorders; microarrays
In this Diversity’s special issue we would like presenting the various methods available to assess biological diversity at the molecular level, with special consideration on innovative techniques, as of high throughput sequencing methods and high density microarrays. Also novel approaches as high-dimensional biology (the simultaneous study of “omic” sciences (including genomics for DNA variants, transcriptomics for mRNA, proteomics for proteins, and metabolomics for intermediate products of metabolism) will be taken into special account, in that they are promising as tools to address questions regarding the molecular mechanisms involved in various biological aspects, as diversity.
The issue is not restrict to any particular taxa. Contributions focusing on application of molecular methods to animals, including human, and also plants, will be considered, to enrich the presentation of novel applications.
