Symposium: Novel and next-generation technologies for pest control
call closes 30th November 2019
New technologies offer a new horizon for pest control. Novel mechanisms that have recently been developed include endogenous genetic elements like gene drives using CRISPR-Cas9 genetic modification, Trojan females that promote genetic defects, and the inoculation of insects with bacteria to inhibit viruses. Endogenous biocontrol approaches offer the potential eradication of pests from entire continents. They also impose major ethical and regulatory responsibilities. This symposium will examine the potential and problems associated with next-generation technologies for insect pest control.
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.
