A section of International Journal of Molecular Sciences (ISSN 1422-0067).
The Molecular Diagnostics Section of the IJMS invites submission of high quality manuscripts reporting new molecular techniques and progress in their translation into a clinical diagnostic setting. This includes studies targeting nucleic acids, proteins and metabolites, and we particularly welcome manuscripts that describe new diagnostic applications for established techniques. The editors will also consider reviews that summarise current thinking or present controversial viewpoints for further discussion. Short communications that report important observations that are self-contained are also welcome.
Detailed introduction could be found in the Editorial: http://www.mdpi.com/1422-0067/14/8/15878
