The unicellular haploid green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a powerful model organism for investigating basic biological processes in photosynthetic eukaryotes, including chloroplast biogenesis, photosynthesis, motility, light perception, stress biology and cell cycle control. In addition, this organism is used extensively for bioresource technology. The availability of an annotated nuclear genome and a growing array of tools and techniques for molecular genetic studies have boosted research on fundamental questions in the cell and molecular biology of this model organism. For this Special Issue of Cells, we request your contributions in the form of reviews, original research articles or shorter “perspective” articles on all aspects related to Chlamydomonas cell biology, such as plastid biogenesis, cell signaling, biofuel production, carbon metabolism, nutrient assimilation, stress biology, autophagy, flagella biology, organelle structure or vacuole function.

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.
