Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Molecular storage, and DNA-based data storage in particular, has emerged as a viable alternative to classical optical and magnetic recorders due to its ultra-high storage density, durability and ease of data replication. Still, practical advances in the field are hampered by the lack of low-cost and parallel synthesis platforms, and the size and time-delays of the read-write connectome and sequencing platforms. To mitigate some of these problems and ensure high levels of data integrity, specialized new coding and machine learning solutions have been proposed for random data access, data sequencing and retrieval. The goal of the Special Issue is to showcase new results in the field of coding theory and computational and learning algorithm design that strengthen the case for archival DNA-based data storage.

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. Entropy 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 2600 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.
