Special Issue "Systems Biology of Aging"
A special issue of Biology (ISSN 2079-7737).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2017).
Interests: systems biology, biology of aging, control theory, evolutionary tradeoffs, bioimaging
This multidisciplinary volume focuses on experimental, theoretical and computational systems concepts applied to the biology of aging. Systems biology provides a deeper understanding of the overall complexity of molecular mechanisms underlying aging of cells, organisms, populations and age-related diseases. Novel experimental approaches, conceptual frameworks and integration of datasets generated from “omics” technologies are facilitators in the generation of systems level models. This includes, but is not limited, to molecular pathways involved in metabolism, signaling and stress responses, protein-protein interaction networks and genetic regulation. We invite for research articles, short communications and reviews addressing:
- Aging pathways and networks
- Experimental systems-level studies and designs
- Genome-wide association studies
- Novel conceptual frameworks
- Data integration, standards and meta-analyses
- Computational and statistical modeling
- Semantic information integration
- Network evolution.

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. 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 1800 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.
