Drug discovery and large-scale manufacturing through fermentation, represented by traditional small molecules of antibiotics and modern macromolecules of antibodies, have significantly increased the average lifespan of humans. The low-cost and high-quality production of such drugs requires improvements in various aspects, such as drug producers, fermentation, purification, and quality control, which is the eternal focus of pharmaceutical companies and the mission of the academic community.
The Special Issue will present recent advances in the pharmaceutical industry and academic community through fermentation, especially the construction of high-yield and high-quality producers using synthetic biology technology, the optimization and scaling up of fermentation processes based on multi-scale regulation methodologies with the aid of advanced sensor technology, and the efficient purification of products using systematical separation engineering technology. This Special Issue also welcomes comprehensive forward-looking review papers on frontier research and industry developments in pharmaceutics.

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.
