Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nucleic acids are the most important macromolecules for the continuity of life. With them, DNA and RNA strands are formed, which carry the genetic model of a cell and carry instructions for the functioning of the cell. Due to the importance of these molecules and the extensive applications of their derivatives, unpublished theoretical or experimental manuscripts that report the physical, chemical, and biochemical aspects of nucleic acids bases, nucleosides, nucleotides, DNA and RNA helices, and interactions involved with them are welcome for this Special Issue. In addition, computational studies that deal with structure predictions, molecular modeling, docking calculations, and tautomerism are also collected.

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.
