Chromosome biology and medical (cyto)genetics have benefited a lot from the introduction of high-resolution analysis of the human genome. As a result, cytogenomics emerged about a dozen years ago. Currently, cytogenomic research is an important part of genomics and human genetics and is required for the accumulation of knowledge about evolution, structure and behavior of metaphase and interphase chromosomes. Moreover, cytogenomics provides key insights into the mechanisms and spectrum of chromosomal variations in health and disease. In practical medicine, cytogenomic analysis has become a wide area of diagnostic research targeting microscopic and submicroscopic genome variations (chromosome abnormalities), which are the most frequent inherited and acquired genetic causes of human morbidity and mortality. It is thus hard to overestimate the relevance of cytogenomics to biomedicine.
This special issue is a venue for a broad spectrum of articles dedicated to the field of cytogenomics, as a whole. Briefly, structural, behavioral, evolutionary and functional aspects of chromosomes are to be covered. We believe that a collection of papers encompassing different cytogenomic dimensions represents a valuable contribution to bimolecular science.

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.
