The development of organisms involves the regulation of patterns in gene expression. Those patterns are often set in a heritable condition through epigenetic modifications and associated pathways of cellular memory. In this way, the widespread synchronization in genetic patterns of expression ultimately determines cellular differentiation and developmental consequences during embryogenesis. Epigenetic aberrations are known to be associated with a range of developmental diseases and, in mature tissues, can also be associated with tumorigenic events. For this special issue, we invite papers related to the molecular, cellular, and developmental significance of epigenetics during embryological development as well as developmental and oncological diseases associated with epigenetic aberrations.

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. Veterinary Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
