The Journal of Fungi thematic Issue is about mitochondria of fungi. Not all mitochondria are created equally. New insights demonstrate that divergence from common ancestors of ETC complexes I, III, and IV subunit/non-subunit proteins has resulted in three types of alignments. These proteins are either fungal-specific, fungal, algal, and plant-specific, and even lineage-specific proteins. Our thematic Issue will also detail interesting observations on mitochondria in mitophagy, cross-talking of mitochondria and other cell organelles, virulence and pathogenesis, fungal mitochondrial-specific antifungal targets, biogenesis, anti-cell stress activities, metabolism, acetate and mitochondrial stress, and integration of signaling between specific mitochondrial proteins and cell wall synthesis. The thematic issue will include pathogens such as Candida species, Cryptococcus neoformans, Fusarium species (plant and human species), and Aspergillus species.

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.
