Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Cells as biorecognition elements have many advantages, such as sensitivity and rapid response to various stimuli. During the last decade, researchers have achieved progress in improving the selectivity of cells against desired target analytes as well as their integration into biosensors, which have led to their use in many applications. For this reason, cell-based biosensors represent one of the most advanced and, at the same time, challenging scientific and technological domains in analytical and diagnostic sciences. The most popular application is in toxicology research, but due to selectivity improvement, they are also used as analytical devices for specific molecules. This Biosensors Special Issue on “Cell-Based Biosensors for Rapid Detection and Monitoring” is intended to be a timely and comprehensive issue on very recent and emerging technologies in the fascinating field of cell-based biosensors for the rapid detection of molecules such as biomarkers, environmental pollutants, etc. and/or monitoring of cell physiology in response to pharmacological or environmental stimuli. Topics include but are not restricted to cell-based methodological approaches, synthetic cell manufacturing (targeted genome editing, genetic circuits, membrane engineering, etc.), integration of cell-based biosensors into platforms, and current applications and perspectives for cell-based biosensors and analytical devices for toxicology and drug research, such as lab-on-a-chip or organ-like cultures. Research papers, short communications, and reviews are all 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.
