Interests: animal molecular cytogenetics; animal genomics; genomics of reproduction; disease genomics
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Sexual development and reproduction are fundamental biological processes encompassing sex determination, sexual differentiation, gametogenesis, and male and female reproduction. Molecular underpinnings of these processes have been of interest for decades and involve a broad variety of studies ranging from cytogenetics to the genomics of sex chromosomes; from meiosis and gametes to disorders of sex development, and reproduction, and hybrid sterility. Recent advances in genomics technologies have provided a new wealth of genome-wide information for identifying the genomic regions, candidate genes, and regulatory networks involved in these biological processes.
This Special Issue on the genomics of mammalian sexual development and reproduction aims to present some of the latest advances in the field and is expected to attract broader biomedical and biological interest.

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.
