Special Issue "Genetics and Genomics of Reproductive Medicine"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 March 2021).
Interests: genetic tests; reproductive medicine; male infertility; female infertility; antenatal diagnosis; preimplantation diagnosis; prenatal diagnosis (PND); non-invasive prenatal screening (NIPT); antenatal age
Numerous research advances in the field of genetics have increased the success of reproductive medicine. Genetics now play an essential role in all stages of the reproductive path, from the diagnostic approach to the choice of more complex therapies. For example, the rapid progress of the technologies applied to laboratory diagnostics provides several diagnostic and screening options for the identification of genetic diseases and chromosomal alterations during the antenatal stage; the options now available range from non-invasive prenatal screening (NIPT) to targeted assessment of at-risk couples.
In this scenario, Genes has decided to dedicate a Special Issue in 2021 to the role of genetics and genomics in reproductive medicine to help with the creation of experimental and methodological efforts to support harmonization and improvement of the outcomes in this important field.
The intent of the Special Issue is to encourage the standardization of the diagnostic and operational processes of genetic laboratories and to characterize and discuss the use and impact of new discoveries in the field of reproductive medicine. We invite you to take part in this Special Issue with a scientific contribution. The manuscripts will, as always, be subjected to examination by specialized reviewers to guarantee their scientific acceptability.Prof. Rossella Tomaiuolo
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 papers will be 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 2000 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.
