Special Issue "Genetic Improvement of Aquatic Species"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 November 2023 | Viewed by 2111
Aquatic species are of great importance for maintaining the ecological stability, function and services of marine and freshwater ecosystems, and for supplying food resources for human beings. Given the high biodiversity and diverse phenotypic and biological features, comparative genetics studies of wild and cultured aquatic species are widely performed for genetic diversity estimation, functional gene mining, gene expression analyses, among others, and can provide essential information for further genetic and selective breeding. The advancement of next-generation sequencing techniques and bioinformatics analytical methods largely facilitate the evolutionary and developmental biology of aquatic species by using multi-omics approaches, especially for species with high-quality reference genome sequences.
Research articles and reviews focusing on comparative genetics analyses of aquatic species, especially using high-throughput techniques including RNA-seq, genotyping-by-sequencing, RAD-seq, and whole-genome resequencing, will be appreciated, as well as manuscripts covering other genetic studies of aquatic species.

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.
