Omics in Space
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2022) | Viewed by 2071
Interests: omics; space medicine; cancer; epilepsy; simulated microgravity; statistics
A stay in space causes biochemical changes in organisms which are first and foremost due to microgravity, but also to space radiation, altered day-night rhythms and, especially in humans, social isolation. The special issue "Omics in Space" deals with the molecular causes of these environmental changes.
Submitted publications should be clearly related to genetic, transcriptional, epigenetic, proteomic or metabolomic studies under space conditions or simulated space conditions. Studies should not be limited to a selected group of candidate genes/proteins but should comprehensively map at least one omics aspect. The studies can relate to plants, animals and humans. A disease reference, especially to human diseases, is desired but not required. Space relevance is also granted under simulated space conditions such as simulated microgravity (e.g. clinostat, RPM, rotating wall vessels) or simulation of space radiation etc.. In particular, we welcome the submission of studies that integrate multiple omics aspects under space conditions, so-called multi-omics studies.

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.
