Recent Advances in Reproductive Technologies

Description

Our understanding of reproductive biology and resultant ability to modify animal reproduction has dramatically increased in recent years. Advances in stem cell technology, embryo manipulation, and models of reproductive tissues and cells have changed our perception of what is possible.

For this special issue of the journal, we invite authors to submit original research articles as well review articles that relate to recently developed technologies in animal reproduction. Of particular interest are reports of investigations into the development and use of reproductive technologies in domestic animals, endangered mammalian species, and animal models of human reproductive medicine. Review papers summarizing specific topics on the latest developments and achievements in the manipulation of reproductive function, applications of such technologies in the treatment of infertility, transgenesis, or preservation of genetic diversity are particularly encouraged. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Preservation of gametes or gonadal tissues/cells
  • Transplantation of gonadal tissue and cells
  • In vitro or in vivo models of reproductive system/cells
  • Transgenesis and somatic cell nuclear transfer
  • Manipulation of reproductive stem cells

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/vmi/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
