Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Cellular and metabolic engineering refers to the purposeful modification of cell properties and/or metabolic phenotypes to achieve various engineering goals, such as the improved production of native chemicals, the formation of non-native chemicals, the addition of new catabolic activities for the degradation of toxic chemicals, and the alteration of cell properties for new cellular functions. In recent years, this field has quickly received growing amounts of attention from both academia and industry due to cells’ great potential to boost biomanufacturing as a sustainable alternative to petrochemical-based production processes. New methodologies and techniques have been developed to provide a better understanding of cell physiology, metabolic functions, and the cost-effective modification of cells. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect state-of-the-art research on the topic of cellular and metabolic engineering. It welcomes any relevant topics, methods, and applications of the research and manipulation of cells for various purposes.

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. Metabolites 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 2700 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.
