A topical collection in Cancers (ISSN 2072-6694).
Interests: genome wide epigenetic control of transcription;transcription factors and nuclear receptors; regulatory RNAs
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Cancer Epigenetics 2018
Over the years enormous progress has been made in our understanding of the way RNA controls and regulates processes in cells and organisms, and how these mechanisms—when they go awry—contribute to the progression of many diseases, including cancer. The regulatory and non-coding “RNA world” includes not only long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) but also many more other types of RNAs (e.g., circular RNAs, enhancer RNAs) that are components of epigenetic regulatory mechanisms of development and cancer. The objective of this collection is to attract research studies and critical reviews on the central role of regulatory and non-coding RNAs in epigenetic mechanisms of cancer.

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 collection 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. Cancers 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.
