Special Issue "Clinical Potential of Non-coding RNAs in Cancer"
A special issue of Non-Coding RNA (ISSN 2311-553X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2020).
Interests: Functional characterization of lncRNAs; Cancer and RNA biology
The increasing awareness of inter- and intra-tumour heterogeneity calls for the introduction of new biomarkers for patient stratification and new therapeutic strategies to target the most aggressive tumour subpopulations. Cancer research has thus far been focusing on alterations in protein-coding genes. However, recent genome-wide studies suggest that disease-causing mutations and chromosome rearrangements often span transcribed areas of the genome lacking a known protein-coding gene. Often expressed in a tissue-, disease- and stage-specific manner, non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are attractive cancer-selective markers and therapeutic targets.
Non-coding RNA is now accepting submissions for a Special Issue on the promises and pitfalls of implanting research on non-coding RNAs into the clinic.

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 1000 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.
