Antimicrobial resistance has become a worldwide public health threat due to the wide use of antibiotics in medicine, veterinary medicine, agriculture and poultry, and multidrug-resistant microorganisms can be frequently identified in both hospital and community settings. Antimicrobial resistance in microorganisms primarily arises from mutational adaptation, alteration of gene expression and acquisition of exogenous genetic materials. In particular, mobile genetic elements act as highly flexible genetic platforms of antimicrobial resistance genes, and they have intercellular or intracellular mobility and thus greatly promote the accumulation and spread of antimicrobial resistance genes between the same or different microbial species. This Special Issue seeks manuscript submissions that offer insights into the surveillance, epidemiology, biochemistry, genetics and genomics of antimicrobial resistance genes and associated mobile genetic elements.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Antibiotics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
