Molecular mechanism of embryo development and cell reprogramming

A thematic series in Cell Regeneration.
Embryo development is very complicate and precisely regulated, but the molecular mechanism is not well understood due to the limited material. Recently, single cell or very few cells multi-omics methods have been developed to investigate the molecular mechanism underlying complicate biological process. Elucidating the molecular mechanism of embryo development and somatic cell reprogramming will broaden our understanding on cell fate determination and stem cell biology.
To highlight these progresses on embryo development and somatic cell reprogramming, Cell Regeneration is currently inviting submissions to its upcoming special issue on Molecular mechanism of embryo development and cell reprogramming.
The special issue will be led by Prof. Shaorong Gao and Prof. Wei Xie. They will have advisory roles to guide the scope of the issue and provide advice on commissioned content, as well as be involved in the editorial decision making on all papers submitted.
We will especially welcome Research, Method and Review submissions, including (but not limited to) the following areas:
- Regulation of primordial germ cell development and gametogenesis;
- Epigenetic regulation of early embryo development including somatic cell cloned embryo;
- Modeling peri- and post-implantation embryo development using embryos and stem cells;
- Pluripotent and totipotent stem cells.
