Special Issue "Genetic Identification of Fishes"

Fish are one of the most diverse taxon groups with rich variation in distribution. Accurate and timely species identification is vital to assess their distribution, genetic diversity, evaluate species for aquaculture and ornamental fishery, and to plan their sustainable management and conservation strategies. Traditionally, morphometric and meristic studies alone were applied for deciphering information at species level. With the advent of cutting-edge biotechnological tools and NGS data generation as well as analysis, species identification has become an integrated science.
In the Special Issue, we look at original articles and critical reviews covering various aspects of fish genetics, such as integrative taxonomy, sex determination systems, cytogenetics, stock characterization, genome sequencing, aquatic biodiversity and conservation, molecular phylogeny and evolution, etc. We look forward to your contribution. The publications arising in this Special Issue on the genetic identification of fish species will provide much impetus for the research programs in the field of fish taxonomy. To improve our knowledge, contributions from experts in the field are invited.

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.
