Special Issue "Analytical Methodologies for Antibodies"
A special issue of Antibodies (ISSN 2073-4468).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 March 2018)
The ever advancing knowledge of antibody production, specificity, function, and utility has allowed for an evolution in the impact that these proteins have, ranging from uses as critical assay reagents through treatment of various diseases by way of novel therapeutic biomedicines. This diverse array of applications for both polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies requires an analytical toolbox by which to fully characterize these proteins in order to fully understand their molecular properties and implicit function. Analytical techniques continually evolve and have become applicable to probe the chemical composition, structural dynamics, and physical mechanisms which define these highly specialized proteins.
This Special Issue of Antibodies focuses on the analytical methodologies used for the biomolecular understanding of antibody molecules. Emphasizing newly developing and novel analytical approaches, this issue highlights biological, biochemical, and biophysical characterization strategies for the comprehensive understanding of the attributes that define such invaluable protein species.

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 papers will be 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. Antibodies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 350 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.
