Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Joint Meeting of the 23rd International Chromosome Conference (ICC) and the 24th International Colloquium in Animal Cytogenetics and Genomics (ICACG) will take place online from 13 to 17 July 2021 (https://www.griffin-lab.com/icc). ICC2021 and ICACG2021 will bring together researchers in cytogenetics, genetics, genomics, genome organization and related applied science in biomedical, plant and animal fields.

More specifically, the following areas will be covered:

  • Emerging technologies
  • Animal cytogenetics
  • Accessory chromosomes
  • Genome evolution
  • Chromosome dynamics in germ cells: structure, regulation and evolution
  • Complex, elusive, and functionally important elements of the genome
  • Mammalian reproduction and preimplantation testing
  • Genome instability
  • Genome function in the nucleus
  • Evolution, structure holo- and mono-centric chromosomes
  • ERVs

This Special Issue is being published in cooperation with ICC-ICACG. The papers that will be considered for publication are those that attract the most interest or that provide innovative contributions. It should be noted that submitted manuscripts should have at least 30% additional, new, and unpublished material compared to the ICC-ICACG published paper.
