Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Detailed analysis of macromolecular structure and dynamics has been greatly facilitated by the use of advanced fluorescence-based experimental approaches. Although the basic principles of fluorescence spectroscopy and imaging were established decades ago, recent conceptual and technological advances have dramatically extended their range of applicability. For example, improvements in optics, electronics, computation, and dye technology have allowed unprecedented access to macromolecular motions and interactions in vitro and in living cells.

This Special Issue will present original research investigations that employ state-of-the-art fluorescence methodologies, as well as review articles that address current progress in the field. Emphasis will be on studies which advance our understanding of biological systems.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy
  • Single-particle tracking
  • Phasor analysis
  • Single-molecule analysis
  • Super-resolution
  • Fluorescent probes
  • FRAP

Due to the success of the first edition of this Special Issue, we would like to add more results and new insights from recent research projects.

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.
