Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/CRISPR-associated (Cas) protein, which originated as a bacterial and archaeal defense mechanism, has become an essential tool in various fields, including genome editing, gene expression modulation, cell imaging, and biosensing. Especially, it has shown great promise in biosensing applications due to its easy design, simple operation, and high specificity. Until now, there have been many attempts to develop biosensing platforms for the sensitive detection of target nucleic acids in combination with various signal amplification strategies. Furthermore, the high modularity of CRISPR/Cas protein enables the expansion of detection targets even to small molecules, proteins, exosomes, cells, etc., advancing the area of biosensing.
In this Special Issue, we aim to explore recent advances in CRISPR/Cas-based biosensing systems that can improve the quality of human life. We encourage the submission of papers in the following topics described by the keywords below but also welcome works on related topics.

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.
