Special Issue "Dinoflagellate Biology in the Omics Era"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2019
Dinoflagellates are important players in the marine ecosystem, as they are involved in coral symbiosis, can cause the formation of harmful algal blooms and contribute an important fraction of the ocean’s primary production. Furthermore, dinoflagellates have many unusual cellular features, including chromosomes that remain condensed throughout the cell cycle without histones, chloroplasts that are derived from a secondary endosymbiosis, and an ability to synthesize a wide range of toxins.
For this Special Issue of Microorganisms, we invite you to send contributions concerning any aspect of dinoflagellate biology examined using genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics or metabolomics.
