Special Issue "Bacterial Engineering and Metabolism Regulation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2023) | Viewed by 4272
Interests: metabolic engineering; biobased materials and chemicals; gene expression regulation; bacterial stress response
Bacteria are the most widely distributed living organisms on the planet with various and complex metabolic mechanisms which play vital roles in the environment, human health, food, industry, and many other areas. Various techniques have been developed for the regulation of the bacterial metabolism and the exploration of its mechanism, including transcriptomic methods, proteomics, metabolomics, adaptive evolution, gene editing, and so on. In recent decades, many bacteria have been engineered for a chemical production, agricultural wastes utilization, ecological regulation, environmental protection, and even disease treatments. Although great progress has been made, our knowledge regarding the regulation of the metabolism is still insufficient, hindering further bacteria engineering and the expansion of their application.
The aim of this Special Issue of Microorganisms is to present a collection of articles related to regulation of the bacterial metabolism and bacterial engineering (both basic and applied research). As a Guest Editor of this Special Issue, I invite you to submit research articles, review articles, and short communications. The topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following: bacteria metabolic engineering, bacteria regulation mechanisms, transcription factor, gene editing, strain construction and optimization, the production of high-value compounds, and new methods or techniques for bacteria engineering and regulation exploration.

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. Microorganisms 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.
