Advances in next-generation sequencing, particularly RNA sequencing (RNA-seq), have led to the discovery of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), whose number surpasses that of protein-coding genes. With the rise of single-cell RNA-seq (scRNA-seq), many cell-type-specific lncRNAs have been identified, yet the functions of lncRNAs remain largely unknown. As proteins have numerous functions, it is natural to assume that a myriad of functions for lncRNAs are waiting to be uncovered. By definition, lncRNAs are non-protein-coding transcripts. Thus, it is essential to examine the sequence structures of lncRNAs to determine the functions of lncRNAs. Currently, there are over 170 known RNA modifications (e.g., A-to-I RNA editing, m6A methylation, and pseudouridylation) that can affect the structures and functions of RNAs, including lncRNAs. This Special Issue on the Systematic Analysis of lncRNA Structures and Functions aims to unravel the diverse functional roles of lncRNAs by focusing on systematic approaches using bioinformatics, computational biology, and/or systems biology approaches coupled with experimental validation.Dr. Shizuka Uchida
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. Non-Coding RNA is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
