Special Issue "Associations Between Non-Coding RNA and Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (22 November 2019).
Interests: bioinformatics; ncRNA; machine learning; NGS analysis
Non-coding RNA has attracted enormous interest in biomedical research during recent years. More and more researchers are starting to realize that the cure to some diseases may lie outside coding regions. The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) launched the ENCODE consortium to study the non-coding regulatory genome, and the consortium claims that 80% of the human genome is associated with some kind of biochemical function through the regulation of the expression of coding genes. Nonetheless, current high throughput technology such as RNA-seq provides us with the opportunity to study non-coding RNA at an unprecedented level. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles, as well as review articles, that will stimulate the continuing efforts in the research of non-coding RNAs. Manuscripts submitted to this Special Issue are guaranteed to have a quick and fair review process. Potential topics for the Special Issue include but are not limited to long non-coding RNA, small RNA, miRNA, tRNA, snoRNAs, pseudo genes, circular RNA, bioinformatics/biostatistics tools related to non-coding RNA, potential functional research of non-coding RNA, and disease associations of non-coding RNA.

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 papers will be 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 2000 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.
