Special Issue Information
Until recently, the investigation of disease etiology, diagnosis, and treatment was based on a conventional reductionist approach. This tenet argues that critical biological factors work in a simple linear mechanism to control disease pathobiology. Rather, they are nearly always the result of multiple pathobiological pathways that interact through an interconnected network: a disease is rarely a direct consequence of an abnormality in a single gene or molecular component. A large body of evidence that is now emerging from new genomic technologies points out directly to the cause of disease as “perturbations” of biological networks. There is an urgent need for integrated network-based algorithms and machine learning methods to reconcile biological network representation and large-scale data integration.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Biology is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2200 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.
