The integration of various omics information such as DNA, RNA, protein, epigenetic regulation brings new opportunities for the mining of important genes and the analysis of molecular genetic mechanisms. It is possible to mine and screen functional genes (including circRNA, lincRNA miRNA and mRNA) from different levels and perspectives by obtaining information of genome, transcriptome, proteome, epigenome, and metagenomics. In this way, gene networks and regulatory pathways can be studied more efficiently, which will lay a solid foundation for analyzing the mechanism of functional genes.


The current special issue will focus on gene regulation and its molecular mechanism in humans and animals. We welcome investigators in relevant fields to contribute original research, review and methods articles. Potential topics include but are not limited to the followings:

• Research and application of genetic basis of important traits in humans and animals

 breeding theory and new breed cultivation

• Research on the mining and function of excellent genetic resources of humans and animals

• Epigenetic research of genes

• High-throughput sequencing research

• Construction of gene (including circRNA, lincRNA miRNA and mRNA) expression regulation network map

Economic Traits, Gene Expression, Epigenetic, Gene Regulation Network Construction
