All of these manuscript types will be appropriate for the Special Issue on Xenopus Genetics and Genomics.
The Special Issue on Xenopus Genetics and Genomics is scheduled to be published in Winter 2011. Therefore, manuscripts are due no later than July 31, 2011. Please send an email of intent to submit to the Editor-in-Chief (email@example.com). When manuscripts are submitted, as per instructions at the above link, please identify that it is intended for the Special Issue on Xenopus Genetics and Genomics in the cover letter.
