Microsatellites are short repetitive sequences of DNA, also known as simple sequence repeats, which have wide-ranging applications in the study of cancer, inflammation and aging as well as neurological and neuromuscular diseases.
This Special Issue is inviting reviews or original contributions relating to any type of microsatellite instability in humans or other model organisms as well as the genes and mechanisms that generate microsatellite instability and cause diseases.Dr. Maija Kohonen-Corish
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
