Special Issue "Yeast for the Production of Biochemicals and Biofuels"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 21 January 2024 | Viewed by 5007
Yeasts have been demonstrated as microfactories for producing a wide range of bioactive compounds useful for industrial applications (biofuels, foods, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, etc.). They easily grow on various carbon sources present in waste hydrolysates of agro-industrial origin, thereby facilitating cost-effective and environmentally friendly production. Various innovations in this area via the metabolic engineering of certain yeast strains and the statistical optimization of fermentation protocols have shown promising results for enhanced production. This Research Topic will include various articles contributing to yeast metabolites and the innovative optimization of fermentation protocols for the sustainable production of bioactive products and/or biofuels (aviation fuels, biodiesel, bioethanol, etc.).
Biotechnological advances in yeast research, especially for the production of high-value compounds such as terpenoids, polysaccharides, polyphenols, esters, etc., have gained great interest in recent years as the market for synthetic chemicals has loosened its hold globally, paving the way for natural, non-toxic products. Both conventional and non-conventional yeast research have gained momentum in recent years, and therefore this topic is timely and will attract the interest of many readers.

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.
