Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last several years, the quantity of molecular information that can be associated to clinical data has increased considerably, thanks to the implementation of approaches and resources that allow the “omics” view of the diseases. Therefore, bioinformatics is considered essential for the management of a huge amount of data, in the perspective of better diagnosis and treatment of rare as well as complex diseases. Indeed, bioinformatics approaches can find relationships among genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, interactomics and other “omics” data, which can elucidate the complex cross-talks among different levels and time scales. Data mining methods would enable the simulation of complex systems and the construction of dynamical networks, towards the development of predictive, preventive, and personalized medicine.

This Special Issue aims to show the state-of-the-art and future perspectives of the application of bioinformatics in data mining for human health. Contributions to illustrate both the development of new bioinformatics resources (including databases and tools) and the application of bioinformatics approaches finalized to the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for the management of rare as well as complex diseases are welcomed.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
