Dr Ioannis Michalopoulos and Dr Apostolos Malatras are Guest Editors of Special Issue “Differential Gene Expression and Coexpression 2.0” of Biology (Impact Factor 4.2, JCR category rank: Q2: Biology). Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2024.
The most common approach in transcriptomics (RNA-seq and microarrays) is differential gene expression analysis. Genes identified as differentially expressed may be responsible for phenotype differences between various biological conditions. An alternative approach is gene co-expression analysis, which detects groups of genes with similar expression patterns across unrelated sets of transcriptomic data from the same organism. Co-expressed genes tend to be involved in similar biological processes. This Special Issue will include reviews and research articles on the topic of differential gene expression and coexpression. The reviews will provide an overview of the methods available for transcriptomic analysis, while the research articles will provide an in-depth description of each state-of-the-art tool. Please send me an abstract prior to submission to make sure that your work falls within the scope of this Special Issue.
