Special Issue "Recent Advances in Systems Metabolic Engineering Strategies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2023 | Viewed by 1382
Interests: synthetic biology; enzyme engineering; metabolic engineering; natural products; microbiome engineering
As a result of the ongoing climate crisis, there is growing interest in producing industrially important chemicals and materials from non-edible renewable resources or carbon dioxide instead of relying on traditional petrochemical refinery processes. Systems metabolic engineering, which integrates traditional metabolic engineering principles with modern technologies including synthetic biology, evolutionary engineering, and systems biology, has been playing a crucial role in constructing efficient microbial cell factories capable of industrially producing chemicals and materials. The field is rapidly advancing with the emergence of cutting-edge computational techniques, including genome-scale metabolic modeling, artificial-intelligence-based strain design, and computational enzyme design.
This Special Issue focuses on the recent tools and strategies for systems metabolic engineering. Original articles with significant advancements in the field and review papers that provide useful insights are both welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, omics analysis, enzyme evolution, in silico pathway prediction and design, genome engineering, genome-scale metabolic modelling, natural-product biosynthesis, and fermentation techniques.

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.
