Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is now clear that most of the mammalian genome is transcribed as RNAs. Whether all of these RNAs are functional or not, their expression profiles are reflections of cellular activities. As such, the dysregulation of RNAs’ expressions has been recorded under various diseases. Due to the decreased costs of performing RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) experiments, the unbiased profiling of the transcriptome is frequently used in both basic and translational research.

The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the usage of RNA as a potential diagnostic biomarker of various diseases. We encourage contributions on technical advancements in detecting various forms of RNA (e.g., non-coding RNAs, including microRNAs, long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), and circular RNAs (circRNAs)) and computational approaches to analyzing RNA-seq data.

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. Biomolecules 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 2300 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.
