This Special Issue is a continuation of our previous Special Issue "Emerging OMICS Approaches to Studying the Eye in the Norm and Pathology" (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/special_issues/OMICS_eye).
This Special Issue of IJMS is seeking articles that would provide new insights into the molecular aspects of physiology and biochemistry of the eye and adnexa, from an OMICS point of view. Submissions with an emphasis on emerging approaches, such as genomics, metabolomics/metabonomis, proteomics, lipidomics, and glycomics are welcome. The Special Issue will aim to present a broad view of the ocular surface, conjunctiva, cornea, retina, eyelids, meibomian and lacrimal glands, and other ocular structures in the norm and pathology. The molecular bases of diseases are often poorly understood, and so are the effects of aging, gender, diet, pharmaceutical intervention, etc. Obtaining and discussing new information on the molecular mechanisms of these processes, and the molecular differences between metabolomes, proteomes, lipidomes, and glycomes of healthy tissues, organs, and secretions, and those of patients with ocular pathologies, would be an important step toward finding cures for those conditions.

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.
