Shrimp is the most important internationally traded fishery commodity in terms of value, with a global market valued at USD 37.6 billion in 2021. Despite its economic importance, research on penaeid shrimp genomics and epigenomics is lacking. So far, draft genome assemblies are available for only five penaeid species: P. monodon, P. vannamei, P. japonicus, P. chinensis, and P. indicus. Research is needed to fill the gaps in the genome assemblies in order to address susceptibility to diseases caused by viral and bacterial pathogens, and environmental contamination, and further for application of molecular genetic breeding techniques in shrimp.
In this Special Issue of Genes, we welcome reviews or original articles covering genomic, epigenomic, or post-genomic profiling of penaeid shrimp that may provide the clues to solve the mechanisms of pathogenesis, evolution, and resilience to environmental change. For example, whole exomes, genomes and gene–environment susceptible microbiomes, metabolomes, proteomes, transcriptomes, and methylomes can individually and/or collectively inform specific molecular mechanisms, leading to the potential identification of factors or simple sequence repeats, transposable elements, and epigenetic marks to study transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of disease tolerance. This will eventually identify the most effective genomic selection approaches and precise treatments for emerging diseases.
We look forward to your contribution.

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.
