Special Issue "Genetically Encoded, Small-Molecule Biosensors and Their Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2023) | Viewed by 5864
Genetically encoded biosensors are proteins or nucleic acids that, when actuated by specific signals, elicit readily detectable cellular change(s) or trigger other, targeted genetic and metabolic responses to those signals. This Special Issue will feature new research into the design or repurposing of endogenously expressed biosensors that target specific small molecules, along with their applications. Example applications include coupling biosensing to outputs amenable to high-throughput screening of single cells, and use as novel dynamic regulators of uni- or multi-cellular processes.

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.
