Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Regeneration is the natural process of renewal, restoration, and tissue growth. All living organisms have some ability to regenerate, but certain species exhibit remarkable regenerative capabilities to regrow amputated limbs, tails, and other complex structures. Model organisms used to study regeneration range include planarians, salamanders, lizards, and mice.

Organism regeneration involves various molecular changes and inhibition of fibrosis. Gene regulation plays an important role in biological regeneration, and identifying key molecules involved in the regeneration process may provide clues to how wound healing works in many species, including humans. This Special Issue will mainly be focused on the mechanism of organism regeneration, reasons for different regenerative abilities among organisms, and molecular signals in the process of regeneration. We welcome all research articles or review articles on biomolecules related to regeneration.

Guest Editor

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.
