Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pathogen detection is important in fields such as medicine, agriculture, and food science. Traditional pathogenic bacteria detection approaches involve multiple steps, including bacterial enrichment, which is time-consuming and requires professional knowledge. In order to overcome these shortcomings, biosensors have been widely exploited for the detection of pathogenic bacteria. 

At present, depending on the targets, biosensors for pathogen detection can be divided into three categories, namely, nucleic acid sensors, protein sensors, and other metabolic small-molecule sensors. Meanwhile, based on the detection principle, they can be divided into electrochemical sensors, optical sensors, and so on.  

In recent years, relevant technologies in these fields have made great progress. This Special Issue hopes to collect the latest developments in biosensor technologies for pathogen detection and to discuss the potential opportunities and challenges for their application.

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. Biosensors 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 2700 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.
