Aims and scope
Mobile DNA is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles providing novel insights into DNA rearrangements in all organisms, ranging from transposition and other types of recombination mechanisms to patterns and processes of mobile element and host genome evolution. In addition, the journal will consider articles on the utility of mobile genetic elements in biotechnological methods and protocols.
The Editors-in-Chief of Mobile DNA welcome authors to send any pre-submission inquiries they might have to the Editorial Email address, which can be found here. We ask that you please include “Pre-submission inquiry” in the subject line of your email and that you include the title and abstract of your proposed submission within the message. Our Editors will do their best to respond to you in a timely manner.
