Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The oral cavity is considered a niche with peculiar ecological features, the disruption of which may lead to oral diseases. While most oral diseases, such as periodontal diseases and caries, are not considered as life‐threatening conditions per se even if widely common, others like oral cancer are life-threatening diseases that compromise the wellbeing of those affected. The “omics” approach is a fast-growing field developed to have a systemic understanding of complex biological systems. Differing from conventional techniques, this approach allows focusing on a large set of different molecules, such as genes (genomics), epigenetic modifications of genetic material (epigenomics), RNA (transcriptomics), proteins (proteomics), and microbial communities (microbiomics). Therefore, “omics” approaches can easily help in understanding the complex biological processes underlying the development of oral diseases. Numerous studies have focused on omics profiling for several oral diseases using different oral biological material, in particular tissue, serum, and saliva samples. The aim of this Special Issue is to promote the application of high‐throughput sequencing technologies to oral diseases.

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.
