Special Issue "Advances for Fish Genetics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 December 2021).
With the continuous development and innovation of modern genetics and biotechnology, important progress has been made in basic research on fish genomes and molecular mechanism analysis of important economic traits. More importantly, a series of breeding techniques, including selective breeding, hybrid breeding, sex-controlled breeding, polyp breeding, germ cell transplantation, whole genome selection breeding, molecular modular design breeding, genetic modification and gene editing, etc., have been established and applied to the breeding practices of fish genetics.
This Special Issue is focused on using breeding biotechnology based on the basic research of cytogenetics, molecular genetics, and genomics to explore the genes and genetic marker resources that control the economic traits of fish. It aims to establish a basic framework for fish molecular breeding and lay a theoretical and technical foundation for the cultivation of new species of fish. We also hope to analyze the polymorphism and genetic structure of fish populations in different habitats and study and evaluate the genetic resources of freshwater fish germplasm, so as to provide basic data and research platforms for the sustainable development of fisheries.

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. Fishes is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1600 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.
