Special Issue "DNA Topoisomerases in Biology and Medicine"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
A community of researchers has convened at three conferences on DNA Topoisomerases in Biology and Medicine over the past six years. With new connections revealed by new discoveries, the field has both broadened and advanced significantly. The application of new methods in chromosome-wide analyses, single-molecule approaches, rigorous quantitative modeling, large human cancer datasets, improved imaging techniques, and more reveal that the topoisomerases carry out far more functions—both positive and negative—in cells than was previously appreciated. This Special Issue serves to summarize the discoveries revealed at the biennial Conferences on DNA Topoisomerases in Biology and Medicine and to hint at what is to come in 2020. In it, we will capture the spirit of these intense, highly cooperative, and multidisciplinary meetings to put the diverse array of highly related topics and approaches together in one place. We envision a Special Issue such as this one being published in advance of each meeting led by the chair or co-chairs of the next meeting.

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 1800 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.
