Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Genetic information is carried by the DNA, which is constantly exposed and may be damaged by endogenous and exogenous agents. Thus, multiple cell mechanisms are guarantees that different types of DNA damage can be corrected. In addition, the ability to detect and properly repair these DNA damages is crucial for cells to survive and maintain a normal phenotype. Defective DNA repair results in a variety of outcomes, including genetic instability and cancer. Advances in the knowledge of molecular mechanisms involved will lead to a better understanding and increase chances of preventing such diseases or even lead to effective treatments.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an overview of the knowledge regarding the molecular mechanisms involved and development perspectives. We anticipate that the papers presented in this issue will be of valuable support for the scientific community, in diverse contexts such as cell biology, physiopathology, etc.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
