Symposium: Epigenetic inheritance and insect evolution
call closes when slots are filled
The concept of epigenetic inheritance provides the keys to many unsolved puzzles in a wide range of biology by circumventing the limitations of genetic inheritance. Recent empirical studies have revealed that the transfer of epigenetic marks from parents to offspring can influence offspring phenotype independently of DNA sequence. Epigenetic inheritance can engender outcomes unanticipated under the traditional genetic model. In this symposium, we feature recent theoretical and empirical studies on epigenetic inheritance and discuss its importance for understanding insect evolution.
Journals participating in Peerage of Science
Available before, during and after the peer review process. All Select destinations have concurrent access to all ongoing peer review processes, and the right to make direct publishing offers to you. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
Available only after the peer review process is complete. Submission to a Connect destination exports the process exclusively and cancels any existing offers from The Select destinations (the traditional "no simultaneous consideration" policy). However, you can cancel export later by exporting to another Connect destination, or by returning the process to full availability. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
You can create a link to the peer review process and give it to editors of any journal of your choice in a traditional submission. Using the link is a free service for both you and the receiving journal.
