Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The presence of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) is firmly fixed in various fields to overturn the previous concepts of junk DNA and transcriptional noise. Many ncRNAs have been shown to be functional as in the case of microRNAs (miRs) and more recent long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs). It is predicted that the number of ncRNAs well surpasses that of protein-coding genes as organisms become more complex. Given such complexity, it is suggested that ncRNAs could be a key to decipher yet unknown mechanisms of physiological processes and disease status. Although the emergence of next generation sequencing (NGS) technology revolutionized the way genomics and transcriptomics studies are conducted, the past generation technology microarray still outperforms NGS for its specificity and easy of data analysis, which is increasing noted by computational challenges due to the increased high-throughput of NGS resulting in avalanche of data. In this Special Issue, we would like to revisit the power of microarrays in profiling of ncRNAs to facilitate further functional studies of exciting molecules that hold more functions to be discovered.

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. High-Throughput 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 1000 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.
