Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Glycans (carbohydrates) are the fundamental substance in life, starting from photosynthesis. As a result, all living organisms (cells, tissues, etc.) are covered with glycocalyx, and these glycocalyces’ physical and biochemical functions have contributed to the adaptation (evolution) and diversity of organisms. In particular, biosynthetic pathways, sites of utilization, and forms of utilization are impossible to capture solely by deciphering the genes of single organisms. For this reason, the development of technologies to understand and utilize glycan functions has been vigorously conducted from various approaches. This Special Issue focuses on the development of glycobiotechnology, and calls for original research papers and review articles. Any technology and means (analytical, synthetic, or utilization methods) can be used as long as they are related to this subject.

We look forward to your active contributions.

Prof. Dr. Hiroshi Hinou
Guest Editor

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.
