About the book

Venomous animals on this planet cover more than 100,000 different species of reptile, arthopod, insects, fishes, mollusks, mammalian and others. During a several hundred million years, venomous animals have evolved to produce venom, which is a complex mixture of toxic proteins and peptides. Recently, in the era of genome science, venomics projects (including genome, transcriptome and proteome analyses of various venomous animal species) have been conducted to disclose divergent profiles and the evolution of venom-related genes. Venomics can provide the latest important information about the antivenom and therapeutic strategy against envenomations, new toxin-delived drugs/tools as leading compounds, and sophisticated mechanism of toxin producing and deliver systems. This book will be focusing on the venom and venomics of various venomous animals.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
