Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The application of genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics — or omics analyses — across diverse fields has increased rapidly in recent decades. These technologies are increasingly applied to non-model organisms, such as marine invertebrates, to understand molecular mechanisms behind observed phenotypes. The knowledge gained from these studies depends upon rigorous attention to quality across the stages of experimental planning, execution, sample preparation, analysis, and interpretation. We solicit papers that apply omics techniques to expand our knowledge of life history, adaptations, phenotypic plasticity, and projected responses to climate change across diverse marine invertebrate tax. We are especially interested in studies that integrate across biological hierarchy and/or convey the potential and weaknesses of the omics technique applied through careful data analysis and interpretation.

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. Fishes 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 1800 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.
