Special Issue "MicroRNAs and Complex Disease: Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment, and Mechanism"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (25 July 2023) | Viewed by 1390
microRNAs (miRNAs) are small noncoding RNA molecules that mainly function as gene regulators at the posttranscriptional level. Increasing evidence has shown that miRNAs have critical roles in almost all important biological processes, and thus their dysfunction are associated with a large number of human diseases. Therefore, they show great potential in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and mechanisms of complex diseases. Although significant advances have been made, there are many challenges in investigating the roles of miRNAs in disease formation and development, disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
In this Special Issue, we are inviting reviews, perspectives, and original research articles to address some of these challenges. Topics will include, but are not limited to, miRNA function, mechanisms, biomarkers, targets, disease treatment, computational biology and bioinformatics.

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.
