Protist Genomics

Versita Publishers is very pleased to announce the launch of their newest journal, PROTIST GENOMICS, which will operate in the open-access style. PG is entirely dedicated to publishing research, news and review articles in the field of genomics of microbial eukaryotes. Currently the only peer-reviewed scientific publication dedicated to this field, PG offers a unique option for many researchers who had so far to opt for less representative journals to submit their work. PG offers the advantage of providing highly specialized reviewers and editors who are aware of the specific issues that characterize genomic research in protists.

Some of the themes relevant to PG are:

  • Analysis of whole and partial nuclear genome data
  • Studies on organellar genomes of protists
  • Analysis of expressed data (e.g. RNA-seq, EST)
  • Comparative and evolutionary genomics, phylogenomics
  • Functional genomics, metabolomic and interactomic studies
  • Structural genomics, epigenomics
  • Environmental and eco-genomics
  • Studies on parasites, free-living and all-in-between are welcome
  • … and more

The journal’s goal is providing a hub for researchers working in the growing field of protist genomics to present their research, discuss ideas, explore new concepts and hypotheses and review the status of particular areas and subjects.

As a way to promote the journal, publication fees are waived during the first two years, meaning that accepted manuscripts will be published, open-access at no cost until 2014.

Protist Genomics has the support of a distinguished body of Editorial Advisors:

  • John M. Archibald, Dalhousie University, Canada
  • Sandra Baldauf, Uppsala University, Sweden
  • Gertraud Burger, Université de Montréal, Canada
  • Michael W. Gray, Dalhousie University, Canada
  • Christopher Howe, University of Cambridge, UK
  • Patrick J. Keeling, University of British Columbia, Canada
  • Franz Lang, Université de Montréal, Canada
  • Julius Lukeš, University of South Bohemia, Czech Republic
  • Geoffrey McFadden, University of Melbourne, Australia
  • Jan Pawlowski, University of Geneva, Switzerland
