Special Issue "Research on Microbial Transformation and Biosynthesis of Enzymes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2023) | Viewed by 1802
Interests: enzyme engineering; synthetic biology
Microbial transformation has proved to be an imperative tool in mitigating the production of various chemicals in food, pharmaceutical, and agrochemical industries, among others. They offer efficient and economical ways to generate an enormous variety of structurally diversified organic compounds via biocatalysis. Microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast, and fungi could specifically catalyze substrates to diverse products that are extremely difficult to produce by chemical routes. In recent years, considerable research on computational biology, enzyme engineering, and synthetic biology has promoted the development of microbial transformation to obtain more biologically active molecules with diverse structural and functional features.
This Special Issue aims to publish both recent innovative research as well as review papers on the microbial transformation and biosynthesis of enzymes, such as the biocatalysis, enzyme engineering, and cell factory construction for enzyme biosynthesis. Reviews and research papers on cell-free systems for protein biosynthesis are also of interest.

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. Fermentation 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 2600 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.
