Special Issue "Protein Engineering of Yeast"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2023) | Viewed by 3361
Protein engineering is the purposeful modification of a protein’s sequence, structure, or expression. In a simple example, one’s favorite protein may be altered to facilitate the overexpression of a tagged version in yeast, which generates large quantities of yeast for in vitro investigations. In more complex cases, several foreign enzymes may be expressed in yeast to create a robust metabolic pathway for producing, for example, biofuels or medicines. Bioengineered yeasts have also been used for vaccine development, reprogramming a protein's fate, directed evolution, and protein-based library screening. This Special Issue will highlight the versatility and power of yeast as a platform for protein engineering. Papers describing research using all yeast species are welcome, including Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Cryptococcus neoformans, Pichia pastoris, and Yarrowia lipolytica.

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.
