Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue entitled "Epigenetics of Neurobiology and Brain Diseases" aims to present recent research on any aspect of the epigenetic studies of brain cells, neurological diseases, and psychiatric disorders. Epigenetics includes studies of DNA methylation, histone modification, RNA methylation, and other epigenetic features. Omics-based study is preferred. The study of candidate genes can be considered when strong justification is made.

Some of its focal points include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Epigenetic profiles and reference maps of brain tissues or cells;
  2. Changes in epigenetic markers in brain diseases;
  3. Epigenetic changes associated with environmental insults related to brain diseases;
  4. Epigenetic changes associated with clinical measures or treatment of brain diseases;
  5. Integration of genetics and epigenetics for brain diseases;
  6. Gene expression regulated by epigenetic features in the brain, brain cell, or neural cell models;
  7. Genetic regulation of epigenetic features in brain, brain cell, or neural cell models;
  8. Functional study of an epigenetic biomarker, and/or its genetic regulators.

Reviews, original research, and communications are welcome for submission. Reviews should emphasize the reproducibility of previous findings.

Prof. Dr. Chunyu Liu
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. Epigenomes is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1500 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.
