Special Issue "Recent Advances in Protein Crystallography"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2017)
The field of the structural biology is thriving owing to several so-called “revolutions”, such as the advent of X-ray Free Electron Lasers, remarkable improvements in detectors’ resolution for Cryo-electron Microscopy and many other important developments in all aspects of the field: Protein expression, purification, crystallization, data processing and analysis, and so on. We decided to compile this Special Issue on “Recent advances in Protein Crystallography” to summarize the current progress and the state-of-the-art of the structural biology. Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts covering topics expressed in the keywords below. The additional goal of this issue is to provide the growing community of scientists interested in structural biology with an excellent reference material. Additionally we will compile the subsection on protein structures, thus manuscripts describing new structures with the structural-functional analysis or “old” structures but with a new twist are also welcome.

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. Crystals 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 1200 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.
