Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Antimicrobial resistance is a widespread medical threat that renders drugs ineffective and increases the risk of bacterial infection. Genetics and genomics approaches applied to study mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance have transformed both human and veterinary medicine in recent decades. Still, there is a lot of work ahead. Understanding the epidemiology, transmission, heritance, and variations of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria will benefit us all.
This Special Issue of Genes on “Genetics and Genomics of Antimicrobial Resistance” will focus on novel observations concerning a variety of topics related to antimicrobial resistance. Suitable subjects include molecular epidemiology and population genomics of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria, tools, and analysis methods to decipher complex genomic structures of such bacteria, mechanisms, and evolution of novel mobilomes facilitating resistance gene transmission, and discovery of novel antimicrobial resistance mechanisms.
We invite the submission of both primary research reports and reviews of recent literature. All articles will be peer-reviewed.

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. Genes 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.
