Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Fungi have been studied for their importance from the biotechnological point of view due to their ability to produce different compounds (enzymes, primary and secondary metabolites, etc.) and at the same time for their pathogenicity. Recent developments in fungal genome engineering have opened a new frontier by implementing the CRISPR-Cas9 technology and synthetic biology tools contributing to the development of new perspectives on fungal molecular biology research.
This Special Issue will focus on any type of study addressing the different molecular approaches developed for fungal biotechnology and on potential new target strategies to control fungal infections based on virulence factors and signal transduction pathways underlying the control of infection mechanisms.
We believe that this Special Issue will provide an up-to-date overview and new insights into the potential of molecular studies in fungi.

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. Journal of Fungi 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.
