Special Issue "Microsatellite Instability"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2014)
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
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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Genes is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
