Special Issue "Functional Nucleic Acids for Theranostic Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2023) | Viewed by 895
Interests: DNAzyme; aptamer; molecular beacon; DNA nanotechnology; liquid biopsy; biosensor
Functional nucleic acids such as aptamers, DNAzymes, RNAzymes and DNA nanostructures have been widely implanted in modern biomedicine. Compared to other functional materials, functional nuclei acids are cheaper, more accessible and more compatible in complex biological conditions. More importantly, the highly ordered chemical structure of functional nuclei acids make them more favored to be modified and engineered for various applications, including biosensing, imaging and therapy. Considering the continued popularity of functional nucleic acids in biomedical research, this Special Issue, ‘Functional nucleic acids for theranostic application’, aims to collect the most up-to-date research on the application of functional nucleic acids in health monitoring, pathogen determination, biomarker analysis/imaging, diseases treatment/management, and so on. Any form of submission—including articles or reviews—are welcomed.
With best regards,

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. Biosensors 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 2700 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.
