Proteomics has acquired a pivotal role in the comprehensive understanding of human biology, revealing biochemical processes involved in complex diseases. Over the last ten years, the main output of differential proteomics investigations evolved from long lists of proteins to the generation of new hypotheses and their functional verification. A bottom-up approach is well suited for the basic investigation and clinical diagnosis of human disease and enables a detailed functional characterization of pathogenic biochemical processes. On the other hand, top-down proteomics has been rapidly evolving and attracting new researchers and interest from different areas of biology, especially biomedicine, thanks to its ability to discriminate proteoforms to broaden the knowledge of the human proteome in health and diseases. Moreover, the topic of spatial proteomics has received increasing interest since protein subcellular localization is tightly controlled and intimately linked to the function.
This Special Issue seeks to provide articles on proteomics that focus on human diseases, comprising viral and bacterial infections, thus generating new hypotheses and providing functional verifications. New studies on spatial proteomics are welcome, since the localizations of molecules and their dynamics at the subcellular level are essential for a complete understanding of cell biology.

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. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
