Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue on Toxicogenomics and Human Health is intended to cover the study of the adverse effects of environmental and pharmaceutical chemicals on human health and the environment by the use of genomic technologies, including genetic analysis, genome sequence analysis, gene expression regulation, proteomics, and metabolomics. Toxicogenomics relies on the use of genomic technologies to assess potential harmful effects to human health, integrating toxicant-specific alterations in gene, protein, and metabolite expression patterns with phenotypic responses of cells, tissues, and organisms. By relying on the study of disturbances of genetic mechanisms it can provide insight into subtle gene–environment interactions, leading to information that can assist in better discriminating sensitive data to evaluate toxic exposure, adverse outcome pathways (AOPs), or predict effects on human health.

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. Genes 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.
