Recently, non-coding RNAs have attracted more and more attention from researchers, as they have been found to affect a wider range of biological processes than previously believed. Other than miRNAs that are already known to contribute to many biological processes, including disease and developments, more recently identified non-coding RNAs, e.g., lncRNAs and circRNAs, have begun to serve as the focus of various scientific studies, especially the interaction between these newly identified non-coding RNAs and others, e.g., mRNAs, proteins, and miRNAs, which has been discovered to play critical roles on various biological aspects. Since it is very difficult to confirm the interaction between them because of the large number of potential combinations, computational approaches are more desirable. However, and in spite of the urgency of this need, not a large enough number of bioinformatics tools as well as databases of these non-coding RNAs is available.
In this Special Issue, we encourage researchers to submit papers on the following topics, but not limited to them:
- Bioinformatics tools and databases of interaction between non-coding RNAs and others;
- Bioinformatics tools and databases for biomarker identification for diseases with non-coding RNAs;
- Bioinformatics tools and databases for non-coding RNAs as therapy and drug targets;
- Bioinformatics tools and databases for regulation of transcription by non-coding RNA;
- Bioinformatics tools and databases epigenetics affected by 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. Non-Coding RNA is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
