Symposium: RNAi as a topical application for biological control of social insects and other invertebrates
call closes when slots are filled
New genomic technologies such as RNA interference (RNAi) are the next greatest development for invasive species management, and are at the cutting edge of invasive species science. RNAi has been shown to be effective in various insects, including ant species, but the research is still in its infancy. This is a fast-moving research arena, with many recent developments including for RNAi construct stability, production efficiency, and target efficacy. Theoretically any biological process within an individual can be disrupted. Such an approach eliminates the need of general insecticides.
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.
