Call for Papers（一）
We are very pleased to announce a special issue, to be published in Fall 2017, on ‘‘RNA Epigenetics’’ in the journal Genomics, Proteomics & Bioinformatics (GPB).
RNAs are life’s essential molecules with diverse functions. The identification and functional studies of multiple types of non-coding RNAs have been a major focus of life science research during the past decade. Moreover, diversified chemical modifications as well as structural dynamics of RNAs have emerged as additional layers of gene regulatory complexity, which form new dimensions of the research on RNA epigenetics. These multiple layers of RNA epigenetics shape the transcriptomic and proteomic landscape of our cells, and in turn regulate a broad range of biological functions. To unravel the mysteries of ‘‘RNA world’’, we dedicate this special issue to the current advances of RNA epigenetics and beyond.
This special issue covers the following topics:
Ø RNA omics and bioinformatics
Ø RNA metabolism: synthesis, processing, modification, and degradation of RNA molecules
Ø RNA and cell fate determination: function of RNA in animal development, reproduction, and stem cells
Ø RNA and disease: function and diagnostic roles of RNA in diseases such as cancers,cardiovascular and neurologic diseases, as well as infectious diseases
Ø RNA and plant biology: function of RNA in plant growth, development, and stress responses
Ø Structural studies of RNA and RNA-protein complexes
Ø Cutting-edge technologies in RNA research
Original studies, reviews, methods, and reports on tools, etc. are all welcome. The deadline of submissions to this special issue is July 31, 2017. Accepted manuscripts to this special issue will be published free of charge. Manuscripts should be prepared according to the Guide for Authors of the journal website and submitted online at http://ees.elsevier.com/gpb/. Please indicate that your submission is for RNA Epigenetics special issue.
The guest editors for this special issue are Dr. Lianghu Qu (Sun Yat-sen University), Dr. Xiu-Jie Wang (Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, CAS), Dr. Jinbiao Ma (Fudan University), and Dr. Yangming Wang (Peking University).
