Special Issue Information
The concomitant incidence of immunodeficiency and autoimmunity in early-onset patients may represent a paradox, yet it has been documented in an expanding number of conditions. The use of unbiased molecular studies to identify novel forms of inborn errors of immunity, along with in-depth functional studies of biological samples from affected cases, continues to clarify the novel pathogenesis underlying immune dysregulation and autoinflammation in patients with an altered central or peripheral tolerance, and contributes to fighting pathogens. The genetic etiology of autoimmune disease has the power to dramatically transform patient treatment, shifting clinical care from non-specific therapies to targeted therapies. The late onset of autoimmune disease in adult cases suggests that multiple genetic and non-genetic factors, including epigenetic alterations, contribute to disease pathogenesis. In this Special Issue, we welcome the submission of original research and review articles related to this topic.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biology 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 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
