About This Topic

Bacterial genomes are generally smaller and less variant in size among species when compared with genomes of animals and single cell eukaryotes. Bacteria also show a strong correlation between genome size and number of functional genes in a genome, and those genes are structured into operons. In addition, compared to eukaryotic genomes (especially multicellular eukaryotes), the bacterial genomes have non-coding DNA in the form of intergenic regions and introns. These structure differences between the eukaryotic genomes and bacterial genomes lead to the differences in gene function, expression and regulation. Over the years, researchers have proposed several theories and use higher-throughput sequencing technology to study the bacterial genomes.
In this special issue of OBM Genetics, we aim to the introduction of bacterial genomes. We accept original research papers, reviews, editorial, short communications, case reports and perspectives, etc. on bacterial genomes. We sincerely welcome authors in this field to contribute their excellent works to this exciting forum.
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.lidsen.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
