Special Issue in Cells: CRISPR Genome Editing: Principle, Method, Tool and Application
Both toxicant/toxin (such as environmental pollutants) and natural products (such as green tea products and gossypol) play an important role in many diseases, such as genetic diseases, cancer, asthma, and cardiovascular disease. Some products, particularly natural products, also play an important role in curing different diseases. Recently, these have been attracting more attraction from both basic science and clinical research. In this Special Issue, we will invite scientists from around world to submit their best research and review articles to this Special Issue of IJMS.
This Special Issue will present breakthrough technological developments and also biomedical mechanism studies in this field. Potential topics will include, but are not limited to:
- Toxicant/toxin and cancers
- Molecular mechanism of toxicant/toxin-induced diseases
- Benefit and toxicity of nanoparticles
- Benefit and toxicity of radiation
- Risk assessment of emerging pollutants
- Genetic disease and environments
- Natural products and cardiovascular diseases
- Drug abuses and various disease
- Small RNAs and regulatory mechanism
- New technology for monitoring environment-related diseases

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.
