Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Genetic material is continuously exposed to genotoxic insults and is crucially reliant on DNA repair mechanisms. Genome maintenance processes vary between somatic and germ cells, with somatic cells requiring maintenance only during an individual’s lifespan, while the germline perpetuates its genetic information indefinitely. Mechanistically diverse repair machineries recognize and address DNA lesions. The DNA damage response impacts a wide range of homeostatic processes and can ultimately lead to cell fate changes, such as apoptosis or cellular senescence. DNA damage is causally linked to the aging process and aging-associated diseases, notably cancer. In this Special Issue, we invite manuscripts that explore DNA damage and repair mechanisms, genomic instability, pharmaceutical drug development, therapeutic resistance and carcinogenesis related to one or more DNA damage/repair proteins. We sincerely hope that this collection can contribute to the field of oncology. To this end, partial clinical research and survey studies are not suitable.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
