The Insect Molecular Genetics section of Frontiers in Insect Science publishes high-quality basic and applied research on integrated Insect Biology employing Molecular, Genetic, Genomic, Transcriptomic, Proteomic, Functional Genomic and other Omics approaches. Research aimed at understanding Insect Biology at the molecular level by employing novel and original approaches and using this information to develop technologies to protect crops, trees, animals, and humans is relevant for this section.
Submission of manuscripts that report new genome, transcriptome, and proteome sequence data and their analysis as well as the use of sequence data already available for thousands of insect species to gain a better understanding of biological processes that make insects the most dominant species on this planet and those that use this information to develop novel pest and vector control products and methods to fight the resistance to these products is encouraged.
Areas covered by this section include, but are not limited to:
· Insect biology studies employing molecular, genetic, genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and other Omics approaches.
· Identification and functional analysis of individual genes, RNAs, proteins, and lipids to genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes, and metabolomes.
· Molecular analysis of insect systems, including composition, expression, regulation, and function of genes, RNA, proteins, genomes, and proteomes.
· Studies aimed at identifying target sites for the discovery and development of insecticides and mechanisms of insecticide resistance development in pests and disease vectors.
· Forward and reverse genetics studies, including transgenic insects, RNA interference, and genome editing to study gene, protein, genome, and proteome regulation and function.
Organismal studies on insect physiological processes are not a good fit for this section; they are more appropriate for the Insect Physiology section of this journal.
