Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is an umbrella term for a group of diseases with two subtypes: Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. These diseases have a complex interplay between host genetics and the environment in terms of pathogenesis, prognosis, and response to therapies. In this Special Edition, we are focusing on the geographical genetic heterogeneity of IBD and particularly changes imparted by geographical differences in the microbiome, ethnicity, and diet to these complex diseases. Understanding the dense heterogeneity in these diseases requires multidisciplinary approaches. This Special Issue aims to provide an opportunity to pull together these different approaches to provide an insight into the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of these complex genetic diseases. We are therefore inviting new research papers, methodologies, and reviews in the broad fields of systems genomics, functional genomics, epigenetics, nutrigenomics, pharmacogenetics, and immunogenetics. We are also particularly interested in the role of community efforts in research in these areas.

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.
