Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Current technological advancements in mass spectrometry and separation instrumentation had allowed proteome characterization at an unprecedented depth deciphering the molecular phenotype of various pathologies. Among them, cancer still constitutes a significant therapeutic challenge, particularly for late-stage diagnosed clinical cases or uncommon cancer forms, for which proteome characterization and biomarker identification continue to get a lot of attention. Quantitative proteomics established itself as a key-method in explaining molecular changes during malignant transformation, as recently proved by various consortia aiming to bring proteomics technologies closer to the clinics.
The current special issue concentrates on the application of proteomics-derived technologies. Systems-level characterization of various post translational modifications with an emphasize on tumor biology are also welcomed.
We are interested in both, original manuscripts, and reviews for this special issue.

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. Biomedicines 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 2600 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.
