Genomic analyses have accelerated the identification of relevant biomarkers and extended our understanding of the molecular biology of the mammalian ovary. More specifically, genomic studies have been used to gain new knowledge about the dynamics of ovarian structures like follicles and the corpora lutea, and about pathologies like ovarian cancer or ovarian cysts. Therefore, genomics are currently a useful tool not only for basic research, but are also commonly used in preclinical and clinical studies. It is hoped that high-throughput genomic analyses will enable a more rational and personalized treatment of ovarian disorders. With the help of gene expression profiling, key gene signatures or signaling pathways can be identified to create clinically relevant diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers. This Special Issue of Genes on “Genomic Studies in the Mammalian Ovary” will address the expression changes and genomic alterations in the mammalian ovary, including physiological and pathological circumstances of all cell and tissue types. Herein, an overview of recent investigations and critical perspectives on upcoming challenges will be provided.

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 1800 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.
