Since its name being coined more than a decade ago, chemical genetics has been increasingly recognized as an effective technique in dissecting complicated biological processes difficult to be studied by conventional classical genetics approaches. The applications of chemical genetics are phenomenon and many disciplines such as cellular biology, cancer research, developmental biology, plant science, microbiology, drug discovery, etc., have been benefited greatly from this powerful methodology. New chemical compounds, probes, and novel screening procedures and informatics have been invented and applied to drive the rapid evolution of this powerful technique. This special issue on Chemical Genetics offers possibilities for colleagues to illustrate latest applications of chemical genetics in various disciplines and new technologies employed to enhance the capabilities of this evolving methodology.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs) and starting from 1 July 2012, it is 1600 CHF.
