Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biology aspires to provide academic scientists with an excellent forum for studies in all aspects related to biological sciences. In 2018, the journal set up the "Biology Travel Awards", aiming to promote scientific communications for young researchers at international academic conferences. After the full consideration by our Award Evaluation Committee, the two awards are finally granted to:

Dr. David Olagnier, at Aarhus University, Demark,
MS Maria Szaruga-Bracke at VIB/KU Leuven, Belgium.

We have received a large number of applications from excellent candidates all over the world. To the Top 35 candidates, a waiver opportunity is granted to publish a paper completely free of charge in the journal.

Profs. Chris O'Callaghan, Jukka Finne, and Arthur J.L. Cooper, our Evaluation Committee Members, kindly edit this Special Issue. It will include the publications contributed by the winners together with their research teams.

We would like to express our great thanks here for all the applicants’ attentions and the winners’ contributions. More information on the awards could be found at the following website: http://www.mdpi.com/journal/biology/awards

Kind regards,

Biology Editorial Office
