Special Issue "Molecular Metabolisms and Regulations of Algae"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 February 2024 | Viewed by 723
Eukaryotic algae are remarkably diverse in terms of habitat, morphology, physiology, and biochemistry, and they play a critical role in global ecology. Algae are useful models for studying metabolic processes in photosynthetic organisms and potential renewable platforms for the production of beneficial chemicals. Algae adapt to various environmental conditions by changing many aspects, from gene expression to cell physiology and morphology, through the regulation of primary and secondary metabolism. Characterizing algal metabolism and its regulation is the key to understanding their role in the environment and unlocking their potential for biotechnology applications.
This Special Issue provides an open platform for the discussion of recent developments in this field, focusing on novel aspects of molecular metabolism in algae, from genes regulation and signal pathways to protein modification and enzyme activity control.
Original papers, review articles, and perspectives from experts in the field are welcome.
Prof. Dr. Elena Ermilova
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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
