Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
It is well known that DNA damage may affect the development and differentiation process in all living organisms leading to death, increased cellular heterogeneity, premature senescence, or uncontrolled, abnormal growth of cells. The stability of the genome is strictly related to the activity of mechanisms able to detect and repair DNA breaks, damaged or incompletely replicated DNA or DNA sequence mismatches and mutation. In this Special Issue of Genes, we welcome reviews, new methods, original research articles, and communications that advance our understanding of all aspects of mechanisms of DNA damage, repair, and mutagenesis from evolutionary aspects to biological, medical, and biotechnological implications. While the mechanisms involved in the maintenance of telomere, rDNA, centromere, and heterochromatin will be of special interest, we are open to any advancement exploring the genome structural variation, chromosomal aberrations, including aneuploidy as well as molecular epidemiology and mechanisms of genotoxicity.

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. Genes 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.
