There are thousands of miRNAs, thus individual microRNA can work as useful biomarkers. In particular, since the so-called circulating microRNAs reflect the whole-body status and can be analyzed by relatively noninvasive methods, they can be used as biomarkers of various diseases, of the progression of biological processes, e.g., differentiation and development, and even as prognostic factors. microRNAs are conserved between not so closely related species, e.g., human and mice. Thus, investigation to identify individual microRNAs that are conserved and, therefore, represent biomarkers might help us understand differences between species. All kinds of studies related to microRNA as biomarkers are of interest to this Special Issue.

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. Cells 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 2000 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.
