In the past two decades, following the discovery of the RNA interference pathway by Fire and Mello, the biological and clinical roles of noncoding RNA families of the ‘dark matter’ of the genome have evolved rapidly. Presently, these families include microRNAs and long noncoding RNA families that are already acknowledged to have widespread implications for all physiological processes within the mammalian cell through their highly effective gene regulatory roles. Consequently, noncoding RNA family elements can—when dysregulated—allow for the pathogenesis and progression of a myriad of medical conditions, including cancer. Furthermore, on focusing on the noncoding RNA influences in cancer, specific tumour characteristics can be exacerbated or inhibited through noncoding RNA direction. This Special Issue aims to delve deeper and consolidate all recent global research efforts (research articles/reviews) for specific noncoding RNA biomarker discovery and validation, including mechanistic implications of noncoding RNAs in the development (and regulation) of the drug resistant tumour phenotype, for possible theranostic exploitation in the near future.

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. Non-Coding RNA is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
