With the advent of next-generation sequencing (NGS) techniques and, recently, the first complete sequence of a human genome, massive quantities of heterogenous and diverse data in biology and medicine have been generated, which makes conventional analysis methods time-consuming and inefficient. To unravel the mechanisms of molecular biological systems in which enormous amounts of genomics data are usually involved, machine learning has become one of the essential tools. Machine learning has been widely used in various domains of genetics, including but not limited to cancer genetics, epigenetics, single-cell genomics, genome editing, functional genomics, pharmacogenetics, genetic risk prediction, etc. To facilitate the dissemination of progress in the application of machine learning in genetics, we are launching this Special Issue.
For this Special Issue, we particularly encourage the submission of manuscripts which deal with any aspect of machine learning applications in genetics, including but not limited to the domains listed above. We welcome manuscripts in the form of original research articles, reviews, short communications, perspectives, and commentaries of the aforementioned topics and domains.

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.
