Special Issue Information

Bacteriophages have been used as tools in genetic engineering and biotechnology for many years. In fact, the first gene cloning vectors were based on modified bacteriophages, and phage-derived genetic elements, like promoters and genes coding for regulatory proteins, have been widely used in expression vectors and for various biotechnological purposes. Still, bacteriophages are sources of sophisticated systems useful in various fields of applied microbiology and biotechnology. Therefore, this Special Issue is devoted to publishing original research and review articles on various aspects of the use of bacteriophages and elements of their genomes in biotechnology. Topics of interest include but are not restricted to novel phage-related cloning and expression vectors, the practical use of phage-encoded proteins, and the applications of phage-display systems.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Applied Microbiology is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
