Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Disease genes are key genes that affect the occurrence and development of disease; thus, finding disease genes or gene sets is essential for understanding and treating disease. However, our understanding of disease is very limited, as only a small proportion of disease genes have been identified. With the advance of new technology, various modalities of data have emerged for profiling normal and disease samples. Biomedical data are getting increasingly complicated, and the amount of data is increasing rapidly as well. To interpret the data, there is an urgent need for computational approaches, especially in the identification of disease genes, which is one of the major tasks for biomedical research.

In this Special Issue, we are calling for bioinformatic approaches to help interpreting biomedical data and deciphering gene regulation in disease.

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.
