Special Issue "Population Genetics of Wildlife Animals"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 December 2023 | Viewed by 1477
Population genetics is the study of genetic variation within and among populations, and refers to the changes in genetic variation in response to the processes of natural selection, genetic drift, mutation, and gene flow. In recent years, large amounts of DNA sequencing data and genomics data have been generated. The rapid development of bioinformatics and computational resources facilitated the conceptual advances and accumulated large amounts of data on wildlife populations. Wildlife populations are under increasing pressure due to poaching, over-exploration, and climate change, which results in declining populations often becoming separated in fragmented habitats. Therefore, one of the main directions of current population genetics is conservation genetics.
We invite you to submit a manuscript on the population genetics of wildlife animals, i.e., theoretical, empirical, or computational. We are seeking studies that have been conducted on how population genetics can inform wildlife conservation and management.

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. Genes 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 2600 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.
