Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2021).
Interests: Immunology; clinical pathology; molecular genetics; molecular biology; OMICs; bioinformatics
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
OMICs have allowed clinical researchers to partially unravel the complexity of molecular interaction networks and highlight the main target molecules that are usually associated with disease onset. Nevertheless, few studies that aim to integrate OMICs data for the purpose of unravelling the molecular basis of diseases have been published so far. To date, each OMIC has only been considered in isolation in a unique clinical context. Therefore, molecular data have accumulated in databases, specific repositories, and the literature that have not been analyzed globally with the aim of producing integrated findings.
Many of the scientific responses that have already been produced have not been understood and interpreted at a coherent biological level as they have not been integrated.
This Special Issue is dedicated to OMICs data integration for the purpose of unravelling the molecular pathogenesis of diseases.
Both original research articles and reviews on this subject are welcome.

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.
