Special Issue "Non-Coding RNAs and Epigenetics in Cancer & Selected Papers from the 2nd International Symposium on Frontiers in Molecular Science"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2017).
Interests: cancer therapeutics; exosomes as targeted drug delivery systems; role of noncoding RNAs in cancer initiation and progression
Noncoding RNAs and epigenetics continue to play fundamental roles in the etiology, detection and treatment of cancer. Over the past decade and a half, researchers have unravelled important roles for miRNA in cancer. Translational applications such as miRNA diagnostics have found their way to the clinic. More recently, a focus on lncRNAs and other noncoding RNAs has emerged including the ability of lncRNAs to bind to and sequester miRNAs by working as competing endogenous RNAs. Several anticancer drugs that inhibit DNA methylation and acetylation are under clinical evaluation. This Special Issue of International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IJMS) will highlight work presented at the Second International Symposium on Frontiers in Molecular Science “Non-Coding RNAs and Epigenetics in Cancer”. We invite all attendees to submit a full-length research article from their presented work or a review article of their choosing on the subject of epigenetics in cancer. Submitted work will be due early Fall 2017 with an anticipated publication date of December, 2017. Feel free to contact myself ([email protected]) or the IJMS journal ([email protected]) with any questions.

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. 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.
