Special Issue "Genomic Impact of Transposable Elements"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 21 December 2020.
Interests: comparative genomics; transposable element; genomic instability; genomic rearrangement; species-specific transposable element; molecular marker; phylogenetic analysis
Transposable elements (TEs) have been found in a variety of genomes. TEs are a major source of genetic diversity in eukaryotes. TEs have played an important role in the diversification and enrichment of mammalian transcriptomes. These elements are associated with genomic instability, cancer, epigenetics, gene expression, biomarkers, and DNA repair. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand TEs’ significance in the host genome. We are interested in articles that explore aspects of genomic/genetic diversity mediated by TEs in all mammals. Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Genomic rearrangement by transposable elements;
- Phylogenetic relationship based on transposable elements;
- Genetic conflict between host and transposable elements;
- Role of transposable elements in host factors and epigenetics;
- Population genetics study by transposable elements;
- Transposable element research by next-generation sequencing;
- Transposable elements as a molecular biomarker.

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. Life 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 1400 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.
