Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Structure, Dynamics, and Function of Nucleic Acids 2.0
Nucleic acids are the most important macromolecules for sustainable life. They form strands of DNA and RNA, which carry the genetic model of a cell and the instructions for its functioning. Due to the importance of these molecules and their broad applications, unpublished theoretical or experimental studies on the physical, chemical and biochemical aspects of nucleic acids–bases, nucleosides, nucleotides, DNA and RNA helices, as well as their associated interactions and functions, are welcome for this Special Issue. In addition, computational studies that address structure predictions, molecular modeling, docking calculations and tautomerism are also welcome.

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.
