Next-Generation Technologies for DNA Sequencing and Genotyping

Special Issue - Next Generation Sequencing

Dear Authors,

We would like to invite you to submit a paper to an upcoming special issue of the journal ELECTROPHORESIS focused on advances in the area of Next-Generation Technologies for DNA Sequencing and Genotyping.

Our inaugural special issue of the journal dedicated to this topic, published in December 2012, was extremely successful (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.co m/doi/10.1002/elps.v33.23/issuetoc). Notably, papers from this special issue experienced a download frequency three times higher than average for the journal. We would like to build on this success by expanding our coverage of new developments and innovative applications in this area, including those involving emerging “non-electrophoretic” sequencing methods. ELECTROPHORESIS is uniquely positioned to provide authors with the opportunity to appeal to a uniquely focused audience with relevant interest and expertise in these areas.

In this second special issue devoted to Next-Generation Technologies for DNA Sequencing and Genotyping, we welcome original research and review papers reflecting the evolution of sequencing technologies and their applications from electrophoresis-based systems, to sequencing by addition, to nanopore-based approaches. Contributions related to all aspects of theory, design, and practical application of these technologies are encouraged.

The tentative deadline for manuscript submission is September 15, 2014 for publication in the first half of 2015. All submissions will be peer-reviewed according to standard Journal procedures and charges will be applied as detailed in the Author Guidelines. Additional information and directions for authors are available on the web at: http://www.electrophoresis-journal.com. Manuscripts may be submitted electronically at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho indicating that they are intended for this special issue, or by contacting the editors directly.

We hope you will consider taking advantage of this special opportunity to take part in launching a new direction for ELECTROPHORESIS. Please contact us if you have further questions or would like any additional information.

Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2015

Special Issue - Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2015

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit a paper for a special issue focused on microfluidics and miniaturization. Since its start in 1999, this special issue has generated significant interest leading to a re-definition of the original scope of the journal and the addition of the new category of “Microfluidics and Miniaturization” to any regular issue of ELECTROPHORESIS. Nonetheless, the special issue on Microfluidics and Miniaturization has become a well- anticipated annual tradition focusing entirely on this exciting and ever evolving field.

With Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2015 we would like to continue this tradition, and we encourage submission of articles covering all aspects of miniaturized systems, including theoretical and practical considerations in their design, fabrication and applications. The suggested topics include (but are not limited to) chip design, miniaturized separations, micro total analysis systems (μ-TAS), lab-on-a-chip systems (LOC), miniaturized chemical and optical sensors, detection aspects, microfluidic interfacing, sample preparation, mass spectrometry coupling, bioreactors and cell manipulation. Theoretical aspects as well as their application to analytical and bioanalytical challenges (Pharmaceuticals, environment, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, diagnostics, forensics, food, ...) will also be considered.

The deadline for submission of the manuscripts is set for June 01, 2014. The publication date of the Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2015 will be the first half of February 2015; however, all papers will be available on-line as soon as possible after acceptance. Additional information and directions for authors are available on the web at: http://www.electrophoresis-journal.com. Please submit your manuscripts electronically at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho indicating that it is intended for this special issue, or contact one of the co-editors directly.

Special Issue - Phosphoproteomics

Dear colleague,
It is our pleasure to announce that a Special Issue of ELECTROPHORESIS, centered on the topic of “Phosphoproteomics”, will be published in August 2014. This publication will contain both research and review papers by recognized experts in the field concerning various aspects related to phosphoproteomics, including novel approaches to separations of phosphoproteomes (chromatographic, electrophoretic, chip-based and miniaturized separations); developments in mass spectrometric methodologies including mass spectrometric imaging; quantitative studies, and integration of transcriptomic and other genome-wide datasets with phosphoproteomic data to elucidate pathway flux.

This Special Issue on “Phosphoproteomics” will include high impact research papers from experts in the field that report technical and analytical advances, together with the current trends and state-of-the-art applications.

We would like to invite you to participate in this special issue by presenting your current results as a research article. Review articles are also welcome when invited by the Editors or following Editorial approval of the topic. The deadline for manuscript submission is May 15, 2014. Each manuscript should be prepared in accordance with the Author Guidelines and should be submitted by electronic paper submission using the website (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho). All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed according to the policy of the journal, and please also note the mandatory page charge for contributions exceeding 8 printed pages (except for reviews).

We are confident that this Special Issue will be an important document to the field of “Phosphoproteomics”.

Special Issue - Enantioseparations 2014

Dear Contributors,
Due to the success of the previous special issues of ELECTROPHORESIS on “Enantioseparations”, the next special issue on this topic is scheduled to be published in the middle of second half of 2014. I believe that with your contribution, the planned special issue of ELECTROPHORESIS on enantioseparations will also become an important reference material for a wide range of audience.

It is my pleasure to invite you to contribute an article to this special issue. The article can be either an original paper describing complete investigations or short communications describing results that are brief, timely and important, or a review article describing very recent innovations. The deadline for manuscript submission to me is mid-May 2014. Each manuscript will be peer-reviewed according to the normal policy of the journal. Please also note the mandatory page charge for contributions exceeding 8 printed pages (except for reviews; see Author Guidelines for details). Please submit your manuscript electronically through ScholarOne Manuscripts at the website http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho and refer to the special issue “Enantioseparations” on submission.

Contributions in all areas of enantioseparations using HPLC/Micro-LC/Nano-LC and electromigration techniques such as CE and CEC as well as microchip CE/CEC will be considered including theory, techniques, instrumentation, methodology, detection, sample preparation, derivatization and preconcentration, separation media, stationary phases and all kinds of novel and important applications.

I am hoping that you will accept my invitation. Please reply to me by email with a tentative title for your contribution at jpba_bezhan@yahoo.com.

Yours sincerely,
