Mycotoxins are naturally occurring toxic substances that can contaminate food and feed stuffs, posing serious threats to global human health. Existing methods to reduce mycotoxins’ effects and studies on the toxicity of their degradation products are still limited. Fortunately, the development of microbiology, biotechnology and nutrition has led to novel strategies for exploring various types of mycotoxins, either microbially/enzymatically or by dietary and nutritional interventions. These developments are crucial, especially in the post-pandemic era.
This Special Issue of Toxins focuses on the novel and emerging biotechnologies/nutritional approaches that have been studied and developed for detoxification, degradation and control of multiple mycotoxins, both in food/feed stuffs and environmental materials. Papers presenting new toxicological/mechanical findings on mycotoxins and their degradation products based on biological research are especially encouraged. Original research articles, reviews and methodologies are welcome, while papers only including data analysis results, policy prediction and macroscopic analysis without detailed experiments are not within the scope of this Special Issue.

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 double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Toxins 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.
