Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The field of translational control has really taken off due to pivotal discoveries in the last decade. In a context where translation did not seem to be a major issue in the control of gene expression, the emergence of miRNAs brought translational control to the forefront of gene regulation. In the recent years, many outstanding reports have highlighted the field and extended the knowledge in several areas impacting translational control such as non-coding RNAs, RNA modification, RNA binding proteins, ribosome structure, development, stress response and diseases. These findings have occurred in conjunction with, or due to significant technological advances in the field of transcriptomics, proteomics and structural biology, coupled to bioinformatics. In particular, technologies derived from RNA-Seq (RIBO-Seq, RIP-Seq or CLIP-Seq, etc.), as well as proteomics progress, including nano mass spectrometry methods have allowed large scale approaches in the field of translation.
This Special Issue on translational control will welcome research articles as well as reviews in the emerging areas of translational control, in order to provide an update to this growing field.

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.
