Symposium: Biological functions of transposons in insect physiology, disease and evolution
call closes when slots are filled
Transposons are repetitive mobile genetic elements that make up a large proportion of eukaryotic genomes (e.g. about 50% of the Aedes aegypti genome). The increasing number of sequenced insect genomes, and breakthroughs in bioinformatics tools to study transposons at the omic level, have opened new research opportunities in this area.
This symposium capitalises on recent advances and will bring together researchers working on functional aspects of transposons across insect taxa to stimulate new research in basic insect biology and novel applications to control insect pests and vectors.
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.
