Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Animal reproduction plays important roles in community maintenance, species evolution, and evolutionary variation in the development and evolution of animal populations. The reproductive capacity of animals is one of the most important indicators used to measure animal reproductive performance and plays a leading role in shaping the economic benefits of animal reproduction. In recent years, with the development of high-throughput sequencing technology, an increasing number of animal genomes have been described, and the genetic bases of some animal reproductive traits have also been analyzed. At the same time, great progress has been made with respect to the regulatory mechanisms and technologies of animal reproductive activities, including the discovery of highlight genes and regulation pathways that provide a basis for further understanding animal reproductive mechanisms and improving animal reproductive ability. In order to aid researchers and readers in understanding the latest progress in research on the genetics, genomics and molecular regulatory mechanisms of animal reproduction, we invite experts and researchers in this field to contribute papers on a wide variety of themes related to this Special Issue.

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.
