Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is the continuation of our previous Special Issue "Application of MALDI-TOF MS in Microbiology".

The introduction of MALDI-TOF MS in the microbiology laboratory for the identification of bacteria and mycobacterium has revolutionized routine laboratory work on microorganisms. This Special Issue deals with the use of identification of microorganisms as well as the new application of MALDI-TOF MS in microbiology. This issue covers laboratory diagnosis of microorganisms, epidemiological applications, biomarker discovery of microorganisms, improvement of common procedures, and novel applications of MALDI-TOF MS for microorganisms isolated from human, animal, and environment. With the advances and novel approaches of the application of MALDI-TOF MS being documented and disseminated in this Special Issue, more improvements and benefits could be achieved in microbiology. As a Guest Editor of this Special Issue of 2.0, we look forward to publishing your work related to this topic.

Dr. Jae-Seok Kim
Guest Editor
