Special Issue "Transcriptional Regulation of Early Embryogenesis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
A fundamental focus of developmental biology is the process by which the single cell of the fertilized egg gives rise to the many cell types within a multicellular organism. Differential gene expression among genetically equivalent cells, often regulated at the initiating step of transcription, underlies the emergence and maintenance of distinct fates during embryogenesis. Precise spatial and temporal control of transcription is thus essential for normal development.
This Special Issue will highlight recent advances in our understanding of the transcriptional regulation of animal development. Particular emphasis will be given to the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that influence cellular pluripotency, competence, and cell fate suppression during vertebrate embryogenesis. We welcome the submission of reviews, perspectives, short communications, and research articles.
Prof. Daniel Weinstein
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.
