Special Issue "OMICS Studies of Dietary Supplements"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Resveratrol, a natural phenol with anti-oxidant properties, is a phytoalexin. The popularity of resveratrol is increasing as an ingredient of dietary supplements because of its health benefits.
As the putative beneficial effects of resveratrol involve changes in gene expression, they can be studied using transcriptomics. In the context of atherosclerosis, a recent review found that differentially expressed genes induced by resveratrol mimicked changes associated with calorie restriction and lifespan extension . In some cases, expression changes were dose-dependent: involving U-shaped curves of hormetic responses. In the context of malignancy, 17 functional genomic studies of resveratrol confirmed its anti-cancer properties .
The Editors seek to update our knowledge on the changes in gene expression induced by resveratrol. We welcome dose-escalation studies, time-courses, tests of hormetic responses, and mathematical models. This Special Issue also seeks RNA-seq studies characterizing alternative transcription start sites or alternative splicing, as well as patterns of expression of microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs.

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.
