GPB
Special Issue on “
Gene Regulatory Network



The journal
Genomics Proteomics & Bioinformatics

(GPB)

is now inviting submissions
for a special issue

(to be published around
April
201
3
)

on the topic of

Gene Regulatory
Network

.

The Gene

Regulatory Network (GRN) is a collection of DNA sequences which interact with
each other and other cellular components, thereby governing the rates at which genes in the
network are transcribed to change the genomic activity. GRNs
are evolutionally
-
conse
rved

and
play critical role
s

in
various biological processes and attract more and more research interest
.

We are pleased to announce a special issue on

Gene Regulatory Network


to act as both a
focus and a stimulus for research on these key
regulatory
ge
nes.
Dr. Roger Patient

from
Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, Oxford University, John Radcliffe Hospital
,
Dr.
Matthew Loose

from The University of Nottingham and
Dr.
M. Madan Babu

from
Laboratory of
Molecular Biology, University of Cambridge
will

be the
Guest Editors

of this issue.

The aim is to
provide a platform for publication of high
-
quality papers on recent advances and developments in
this important area.
The topics may include (but not be limited to) experimental approaches
used in GRN rese
arch, GRNs in different biological processes

and during evolution
,
m
odeling and designing of GRN, and the regulation of GRNs including b
y

transcription
factors,
miRNA
, epigenetics
,
and 3D structure of chromosomes
.

Original studies, reviews, methods, applic
ation notes,
etc

are all welcome.

The portfolio will be
open for incoming manuscripts till

November

3
