Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2023) | Viewed by 6420
Interests: protein and RNA structure analysis and prediction; protein folding and function; protein stability and kinetic; predicting the impact of protein variants; genotype interpretation
Interests: bioinformatics; functional genomics; rare diseases; genome analysis; single-cell omics
This Special Issue focus on the recent works presented during the VarI-COSI session at the ISMB 2022 meeting. For this Special Issue, we are interested in works presenting original studies or reviews in all fields of genetic variant research, including, but not limited to, "genetic variants in" sequence analysis, protein structure and function, protein interactions and molecular networks, transcriptomics and gene regulation, disease models and epidemiology, population genetics and evolution and comparative genomics. The Special Issue aims to focus on themes related to genetic variants as markers; evolution, populations, GWAS and genetic variants as effectors; and function, structure and regulation. In detail, submissions on the following major research topics of the field are welcome:
- Databases of genetic variants;
- Data mining algorithms for variant annotation;
- Variant visualization tools;
- Computational methods for predicting the impact of variants;
- Experimental studies on variant effects;
- GWAS studies and variant prioritization;
- Population genomics and phylogenetic analysis;
- Impact of variants 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. 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.
