Symposium: Symbiotic cells, tissues, organs and structures across insects: development and maintenance of insect-microbe interactions.
call closes when slots are filled
Growing evidence has shown that insects acquired novel biological functions through microbial symbioses. Insects often evolved symbiotic cells, organs (bacteriocytes, gut crypts, mycangia, etc) or external structures (nests) for maintaining beneficial microbes in or out of body. Microbes have also gained stable residence by affecting insect traits, extended phenotypes through co-evolution. For a better understanding of insect-microbe symbioses, we propose a symposium on the symbiotic organs or structures found in diverse insects, with a focus on molecular, cellular and developmental biology.
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.
