New Special Issue on Protein synthesis and its control in yeasts

We are pleased to inform you of an upcoming Special Issue of the journal Yeast that will focus exclusively on ‘Protein synthesis and its control in yeasts'. The issue will be edited by Manuel Santos (Aveiro, Portugal) and Mick Tuite (Canterbury, UK).

We encourage submission of both original research articles and reviews on all aspects of protein synthesis and its control in different yeast species. The last few years has seen significant progress made towards understanding the fine details of post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression through studies with yeasts. These studies have provided fascinating insights into the link between genotype and phenotype. New aspects of gene expression control associated with mRNA processing and quality control, codon bias, ribosome dynamics and the surprising discovery that mistranslation can be adaptive, coupled with the emergence of powerful new tools to study protein synthesis, are raising important new questions with implications for evolution, human disease and biotechnology. The aim is to capture these emerging stories in this special issue of Yeast. Please click here for further details on specific areas.

Please submit your manuscript online before 1st May 2018 at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/yeast. The issue will appear January 2019. Accepted manuscripts will be published as Advance Online Articles in Yeast prior to the Special Issue print publication and all publications will benefit from open access through Wiley publications.

About the Journal










Special Issue on Yeast Interspecies Hybrids coming soon

The importance of yeast hybrids is becoming increasingly recognised in many aspects of biology, evolution and biotechnology. Hybrids both offer a powerful tool to explore and exploit yeast biotechnological potential, and raise new challenges in our understanding of fundamental biological questions.

The topics covered by this Special Issue include but are not restricted to:

  • Hybridization process
  • Genetic inheritance (aneuploidy, mitochondrial) and speciation (sterility)
  • Meiotic and mitotic recombination Genome evolution (introgression, allopoliploidization, LOH, rearrangements)
  • Taxonomy/phylogeny
  • Nucleus organization Protein complexes Gene expression and regulation
  • Biotechnological properties and applications (heterosis, strain improvement, genome editing, synthetic biology, experimental evolution)

Accepted manuscripts will be published as Advance Online Articles in Yeast prior to the Special Issue print publication and all publications will benefit from open access through Wiley publications. The full Special Issue will be published in January 2018.
