Call for Papers for “RNA Processing and Regulation”

Guest Editors:
Dr. Xinshu Grace Xiao, Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology, University of California Los Angeles, USA
Dr. Chaolin Zhang, Columbia Initiative for Systems Biology, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, Columbia University, USA

RNA processing and regulation are increasingly recognized as essential aspects of gene expression that generate enormous diversity at the RNA level. In recent years, advances in technologies and quantitative approaches are rapidly enabling improved understandings of RNA processing and regulation, for example, through alternative splicing, alternative polyadenylation and RNA modifications. This special issue is seeking for papers on recent research and development on RNA processing and regulation.

Subject Coverage
We invite authors to submit original research and reviews to this Special Issue. The topics will encompass all aspects of RNA processing and regulation research using quantitative approaches, for examples:
 ● Regulation, function and evolution of RNA processing
 ● Technologies and computational approaches to RNA processing and regulation
 ● RNA processing and regulation in human diseases

Quantitative Biology (QB) is an interdisciplinary journal that focuses on original research that uses quantitative approaches and technologies to analyze and integrate biological systems, construct and model engineered life systems, and gain a deeper understanding of the life sciences.
 
Notes for Prospective Authors
The submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers are refereed through a peer review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submitting papers are available on the Guidelines for Authors.
