Epigenetics & Mammalian Tissues


In Eva Jablonka and Lamb’s words, epigenetics is one of the four dimensions of evolution. After decades thinking and acting as if the genome determined the absolute fate of any life form in Earth, the relevance of epigenetics for mammalian life, disease and death is now recognized. In fact, assuming similar genomes, lifespan, life style, and risk of diseases, etc. results from a balance between genes and epigenetic traits. The Research Topic aims to show the differences of epigenetic traits between tissues, their physiological relevance and potential to target epigenetic mechanisms in human diseases.

The International Journal of Pure and Applied Zoology publish high-quality research papers that are original and are of broad interest. The Editorial Board Members seek studies that are hypothesis-driven and interdisciplinary in nature on animal behavior, ecology, physiology, anatomy, developmental biology, evolution, systematics, genetics and genomics. The journal emphasizes high-level research and education. Original research articles, reviews, short communications, and letters to the editors in the fields of Zoological Science are welcome. Every effort is made to have a speedy and critical peer-review process.

A standard editorial manager system is utilized for manuscript submission, review, editorial processing and tracking which can be securely accessed by the authors, reviewers and editors for monitoring and tracking the article processing. Manuscripts can be uploaded online at Editorial Tracking System or forwarded to the Editorial Office at zoology@peerreviewedjournals.com
