Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Recent advances in protein synthesis have revolutionized our understanding of cellular processes, enabling groundbreaking discoveries and the development of innovative technologies. Protein synthesis, the cellular mechanism by which amino acids are linked together to form proteins, is a fundamental process crucial for life. In recent years researchers have made significant strides in this field, with noteworthy achievements in both understanding the intricacies of protein synthesis and enhancing its applications.

Technological advancements, such as high-throughput methods and advanced imaging techniques, have allowed scientists to explore the dynamics of protein synthesis in unprecedented detail. The identification of new ribosomal components, the elucidation of intricate translation mechanisms, and the discovery of regulatory factors have expanded our knowledge of the complexity of protein synthesis at the molecular level.

In addition to fundamental research, recent innovations in synthetic biology and biotechnology have leveraged protein synthesis for various applications. These include the production of therapeutic proteins, the engineering of novel enzymes with enhanced functionalities, and the development of bio-based materials. The ability to precisely control and manipulate protein synthesis holds immense promise for fields ranging from medicine to industrial biotechnology.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
