Special Issue "The Development, Differentiation, and Toxicity of Gametes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2021).
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Germ cell development and differentiation is very important for maintaining and preserving fertility in both males and females. In recent years, infertility has been increasing due to various factors that cause the abnormal development and differentiation of germ cells. These include both genetic and environmental factors that result in toxicity. Identifying the exact factors leading to abnormal development and toxicity of germ cells over the lifespan is of great importance. This requires continued efforts, which will give us the better understanding necessary to overcome infertility related to germ cell development and differentiation. In this issue, we would like to invite potential researchers who are working toward revealing the causes of infertility, and solving the problem from various aspects such as the development, differentiation, and toxicity of germ cells.
