Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
In the last two decades, interest in the field of non-coding RNAs has increased due to their regulatory role in two-thirds of human transcriptional output. Although several classes of non-coding RNAs can be found in nature, microRNAs take central stage due to their pleiotropic, biochemical, and pharmacological roles and, importantly, their role in human nutrition.
In this Special Issue, we aim to present a collection of papers dealing with the interaction between nutrition and microRNA expression, the presence of dietary non-coding RNAs, and the potential implications of non-coding RNAs for human health, without ruling out polytherapy in the elderly. We also aim to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art in this field and to bring to the attention of readers the issues that will need to be resolved in this field 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 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. Nutrients 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 2900 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.
