Cancer exhibits different hallmarks, such as anti-apoptosis, proliferation, resistance to cell death, angiogenesis, invasion, migration, and metastasis. Globally, cancer remains a major issue in human health. How to prevent or treat different cancers is very important. Increasing data highlight the role of biomolecules, including miRNA, long non-coding RNAs, peptides, polysaccharides (from marine systems or plants), and natural products (polyphenols, flavonoids, or anthocyanidins), in the prevention or treatment of different cancers.
This Special Issue of Biomolecules, titled “Biomolecules and Cancer Prevention”, welcomes the submission of manuscripts in the form of either original research or review articles on functional biomolecules, such as miRNA, long non-coding RNAs, peptides, polysaccharides, and natural products, to provide a better understanding of the effects of different kinds of biomolecules on the molecular mechanisms of cancer prevention and treatment, including preclinical and clinical studies.

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. Biomolecules is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2000 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.
