This Special Issue will focus on biosensor nanoengineering design, real time operation and their implementation to solve real-life problems in the whole ecosystem. This issue will deal with the nanoengineering of biomaterials and nanomaterials and their interactions to develop state-of-the-art nanostructures, systems, and devices to be used as sensing/biosensing tools. There are many challenges for the real time implementation of biosensors such as poor stability, low specificity, poor sensing performance of materials and environmental sensitivity. In addition, the use of biodegradable materials for fabrication of disposable biosensors, their reusability, signal capture or amplification are other hurdles in the way of creating sustainable biosensing devices. Nanoengineering of biomaterials such as enzyme, aptamers (nucleic acids), antigen-antibodies, whole cell, and new age nanomaterials such as metal carbides, metal oxides, transition metal di-chalcogenides, as well as carbon allotropes will help to tackle the abovementioned shortcomings and will result in the development of highly sensitive, selective, and stable biosensing detection platforms. Moreover, the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning will further result in the rapid interpretation of data prediction and implementation of developed biosensing devices in real-time situations. The developments shall bring more realistic technical solutions to emerging global concerns such as food safety, environmental protection, and health-care monitoring.
In this Special Issue, we are pleased to invite contributions that will lead towards significant advancements in the field of biosensor technologies concerning food safety, environmental protection, social security, and health care monitoring.
Contributions as critical reviews on recent developments in the abovementioned topics are most welcome.

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.
