I hope you are keeping well in these unprecedented and difficult times. I am contacting you regarding the Special Issue we are editing in collaboration with “Biology” (ISSN 2079-7737; IF 3.796), titled: Genome Plasticity in Disease, Evolution and Adaptation.
This Special Issue welcomes the submission of research articles and reviews on genome plasticity and genomic variability. More in detail, submissions should be focused on the effects of these two mechanisms on the evolution of genomes and the adaptation of organisms, including the plasticity of the transcriptome and regulatory elements.
We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the Special Issue, of which the final deadline for submissions is: 31 July 2021.
Additional information may be found in the attached files or at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/biology/special_issues/GPIDEAA .
As you might know, Biology is an open access journal with article processing charge (APC) of 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs) applied to papers accepted after peer review (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/biology/apc). Unfortunately, we cannot offer a complete waiver of the publication costs, but discounts are available for authors from institutes which participate in MDPI’s Institutional Open Access Program.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
We are looking forward to your reply and certainly hope you will consider contributing to the issue.
