Special Issue "Pipeline Tools for Next Generation Sequencing Analysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2019.
The use of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies in the interrogation of hypotheses has become increasing common in medical and biological research. With the advent of multiplexing technologies, the increase in sequence output from NGS machines and the development of novel applications for NGS, the complexity of high-throughput sequencing experiments has increased coordinately. The analysis of data from this diverse range of NGS applications requires a complex interaction between generic NGS data processing and application specific software tools while maintaining the high levels of reproducibility required in research. The use of pipelines and workflows in the analysis of NGS applications offers not only a high-throughput, automated processing and analysis of the data but a mechanism to enhance reproducibility and establish best practices in the analysis of NGS application types.
In this Special Issue, the contributing authors will present the most recent developments in pipelines and workflows for the analysis of both established and emerging NGS sequencing applications and technologies.

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.
