About DNA


DNA (ISSN 2673-8856) is an international peer-reviewed open access journal. DNA publishes novel research findings, reviews and communications in DNA-related technologies, genomic structure, bioinformatics and cytogenomics. There is an emphasis on the highest scientific quality and a “sequence to consequence” philosophy. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish work with the broadest possible scientific appeal, prioritising studies in which changes in DNA sequence and structure have phenotypic ramifications, both for the individual (including clinical application) and for evolution. Manuscripts should be clearly written, with the key findings expressed in an accessible way; however, there is no limit on length. Full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced and the journal will make full use of supplementary electronic material where appropriate.


We accept manuscripts on all aspects of DNA and DNA-related technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Nucleotides; nuclear DNA; mitochondrial DNA; chloroplast DNA; mobile DNA
  • DNA replication; DNA damage and repair; nucleic acid enzymes
  • Gene regulation; gene expression; DNA methylation; epigenetics
  • Sequencing technologies; DNA testing; genomics; bioinformatics
  • DNA origami; DNA-based hybrid materials; DNA-based sensors
  • Chromosome organization; genome structure and function; chromatin remodelling and dynamics; nuclear organization
  • Genome evolution from sequence to structural level

MDPI is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). MDPI takes the responsibility to enforce a rigorous peer-review together with strict ethical policies and standards to ensure to add high quality scientific works to the field of scholarly publication. Unfortunately, cases of plagiarism, data falsification, inappropriate authorship credit, and the like, do arise. MDPI takes such publishing ethics issues very seriously and our editors are trained to proceed in such cases with a zero tolerance policy. To verify the originality of content submitted to our journals, we use iThenticate to check submissions against previous publications.
