Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

This Special Issue is a continuation of our previous Special Issue “From Basic to Translational Bioinformatics of Human Infectious Diseases”.

In recent years, biomedical research with translational potential gradually changed from the investigation of limited sets of biological elements to a broader, more general, and complete perspective. The important factors in this transition were remarkable technological developments in sequencing and related technologies, sample preparation, and bioinformatics tools. The ongoing revolution in this area enabled multiomics approaches, the sequencing of nucleic acids at single-cell resolutions, among others. In parallel, the potential for the use of publicly available “omics” datasets in integrative large-scale analysis is ever-increasing. Collectively, this raises the possibility of undertaking research, considering the close to full complexity of biological systems, that can be translated into advanced diagnostics, medical procedures, and therapies. 

In this Special Issue of Genes, we invite you to send your contributions concerning any aspects related to the use of genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, or other “omics” in fundamental or applied human infectious diseases studies. Submissions may range from genetic to metabolic and evolutionary aspects of host–pathogen interactions, including transcriptomic or epigenetic changes related to immune system responses or antimicrobial resistance in major, emerging, or neglected human infectious diseases.

Dr. Nuno S. Osório

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. Genes 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 2600 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.
