Special Issue on Medical Genetics and Epigenomics

Medical Genetics and Epigenomics explore the potential genetics and/or epigenetics biomarkers for diseases. From the development of methods to the identification of genetics and/or epigenetics biomarkers and translation of biomarkers as the screening tools for diseases. The journal accepts original, innovative and sound theoretical research on different diseases by focusing on the exploration of potential insights of genes involved in diseases, development of innovative (epi)genotyping methods and screening tools as well as powerful computational and bioinformatics analyses. The journal has a multi-disciplinary approach which includes original research, short communications, perspectives, theory, models, analyses, applications and reviews.

About the issue

The topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Genetics and epigenetics aspects of all diseases
  • Methods and protocols development on high-throughput sequencing, whole genome analysis, bioinformatics and/or computational biology, in silico and biostatistical analyses.

Special Issue on Recent advances in therapeutic potential of proteins and peptides

While protein and peptide therapy approaches have developed significantly in past few decades, they have faced some critical limitations. This theme issue will cover recent advances in the usage of proteins and peptides in disease therapy, and will encompass their applications as new targets of drug discovery. Various aspects like protein-protein interaction, protein-DNA interaction, protein-drug conjugation, peptide-drug conjugation and computational peptide designing will be explored for their therapeutic potential for various diseases and drug targets. In addition, the recent findings on the role of transporter proteins, hormones, enzymes and antibodies as potential therapeutic agents will also be covered.

About the issue

The topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • 1. Protein kinases as targets for drug discovery
  • 2. Application of protein-protein interaction network in drug discovery
  • 3. Protein-DNA interaction in drug discovery
  • 4. Protein-drug conjugates in the treatment of various diseases
  • 5. Ubiquitin-proteosome system/machinery as drug targets
  • 6. Transporter proteins as targets for drug discovery
  • 7. Targeting protease as drug target in various diseases
  • 8. Peptides in drug designing and drug discovery
  • 9. Peptide-drug conjugates in the treatment of various diseases
  • 10. Small molecules and peptides as therapeutic agents: applications and pitfalls
  • 11. Computational peptide designing as therapeutic agents for various disease
  • 12. Hormones and enzymes as therapeutic agents
