Special Issue "RNA Bioinformatics: Tools, Resources, and Databases for RNA Research"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2022 | Viewed by 713
RNA research has become a more popular direction in molecular biology. Recently, many new RNA biotypes and functions have been discovered, and new experimental protocols for RNA research have been developed. The analysis of new data and prediction of the function of different RNAs require bioinformatic support. This issue aims to collect bioinformatic tools and resources for RNA analysis.
This Special Issue aims to publish articles in the following areas: tools for predicting RNA structures, including those with pseudoknots, as well as approaches based on comparative and evolutionary analysis; tools and resources for analyzing experimental data on RNA structure; search and analysis of RNA motives; analysis of 3D structures of 3D RNA motifs; methods for the analysis of RNA interactions. It is also expected to publish articles on RNA databases, particularly databases on 3D motives of RNA structures and RNA interactomes. Review articles and articles devoted to the comparative analysis and benchmarking of RNA analysis tools are of particular interest.

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 2100 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.
