Recent advancements in the field of bio electronics and biotechnology have provided systems that are able to efficiently transduce biological events using rapid, label-free electronic devices. This progress has led to the improvement of biological sensing platforms demonstrating the potential to be applied for the rapid screening of biological samples and point-of care applications. Particularly, the tailoring of new biomaterials by bio-genetic engineering allows to create new enzymes and protein receptors, and to engineer monoclonal antibodies, aptamers or nucleic acids for non-biological substrates thus helping their integration in electronic devices. These electronic devices are mainly based on Carbon Nanotubes, Nanowires, Graphene sheets; Field Effect Transistors, piezoelectric crystals, scanning tunneling microscopy tips and others.
This special issue will be focused on contributions related with innovative bioelectronics tools useful for clinical and biological applications, biodefense and food processing. Including bio(nano)sensors, cells and bio-receptor arrays, electronic bio-circuits for specific cell signaling, devices for proteins detection and study of their conformational structure.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biosensors 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 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
