RNA & Gene Regulation

Guest Editors: Brenton Graveley and Mihaela Zavolan

New Content ItemRNA plays important roles in the many complex pathways that control how genes are expressed. Recent advances, such as findings of extensive modifications of regulatory RNAs, indicate that our understanding of the role of RNAs in gene regulation is far from complete.

Genome Biology's special issue will shed new light on this important area.

We will consider Research, Method, and Software manuscripts of exceptional interest relating to gene regulation by RNA, including but not limited to:

-  RNA processing and metabolism
-  RNA editing
-  Epitranscriptomics
-  Functions of RNA structures
-  Regulation by non-coding RNAs
-  Role of RNAs in disease
-  RNA-based therapies

Submission deadline: 1st June 2017

Please use the online submission system, and indicate in your covering letter that you would like the manuscript to be considered for the ‘RNA & Gene Regulation’ special issue. If you would like to inquire about the suitability of a manuscript for consideration, please email a pre-submission inquiry to
