Special Issue in Epigenomes: Polycomb Proteins
Cellular identity and organism development are mediated by two large groups of proteins: the Polycomb group (PcG), which represses transcription, and the Trithorax group (TrxG), which activates transcription. The tight regulation and coordination of both protein families is fundamental to properly coordinate cellular programs that will enable development and differentiation. Deregulation of proteins belonging to PcG or TrxG families leads to a wide spectrum of developmental disorders and diseases, including cancer.
This Special Issue is focused on the function of PcG and TrxG complexes, both in development and disease. We will consider reviews, research, or method manuscripts of exceptional interest on the following topics:
- PcG or TrxG proteins in the development of any model organism;
- The role of PcG or TrxG components in disease;
- The role of PcG or TrxG in gene regulation and chromatin architecture.

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. Epigenomes 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 1500 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.
