Enzymes play an essential role in many key technologies and manufacturing processes in life sciences. Enzymes are widely used in various fields, including food, drug, feed, and chemical industries. These ubiquitous catalysts in living organisms efficiently and selectively catalyze various biochemical reactions under mild conditions, finely regulating the complex metabolic processes in living organisms.
The use of enzymes in fermentation has a long history dating back to ancient times when humans first discovered the transformative power of microorganisms. Enzymes can break down complex substrates into simpler molecules, convert one molecule into another, or modify the properties of the final product. With the rapid development of modern biotechnology and the emergence of new technologies and engineering design ideas of synthetic biology, enzyme design and application fields have rapidly advanced. This has deepened scientists’ understanding of enzymes, from searching for natural enzymes to creating artificial enzymes, and has led to “Environmentally Conscious Manufacturing” that not only improves human life but also opens the door to designing life.
The goal of this Special Issue is to publish recent innovative research results and review papers on applications of enzymes in biosynthesis. We encourage you to submit Research Articles or Review papers to this special issue.

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.
