Special Issue "Genome Plasticity of Human and Plant Pathogenic Fungi"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 September 2019).
Interests: genome plasticity; host-fungus interaction; stress adaptation; aneuploidy
This Special Issue will be a collection of review articles on genome plasticity across human and plant pathogenic fungi. Contributions to this issue will shed light on genome diversity and how it contributes to adaptation and evolution in diverse fungi. We welcome contributions on 1) genomic diversity within and between species or populations; 2) mechanisms of genotypic and phenotypic diversity; 3) how specific traits are influenced by genome plasticity; and 4) the role of genome plasticity on the adaptation and evolution of fungi. A special emphasis will be placed on how fungus–host interactions are shaped by fungal genome plasticity. We welcome reviews that compare genome plasticity mechanisms between ascomycetes and basidiomycetes and between human and plant pathogenic fungi. Our goal is to connect genomics research on human and plant pathogenic fungi and to broaden interdisciplinary discussions on these topics.

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 2000 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.
