Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ever since the discovery of aminoglycoside antibiotics, mainstream research in aminoglycoside has often focused on chemical and biological studies of their antibacterial activity, mechanisms of bacterial resistance, and structural analyses that are also related to antibacterial activity or bacterial resistance. However, there have been several significant and novel results in aminoglycoside research, generated beyond traditional scopes of aminoglycosides. The proposed Special Issue will provide a platform for researchers to publicize their latest achievements and perspectives in aminoglycoside research. The topics may include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  1. Amphiphilic aminoglycosides as new class of antibacterial agent
  2. Amphiphilic aminoglycosides as new class of antifungal agent
  3. New diagnostic techniques (fluorescence, mass spec, cell-based, etc.) using aminoglycosides
  4. Latest results from the biosynthesis and chemical synthesis of aminoglycoside
  5. Using aminoglycosides as potential treatment of human genetic diseases

In summary, this Special Issue will cover reviews or research advances in recent aminoglycoside research. In addition to the traditional antibacterial research, new applications and multidisciplinary approaches will be the important features for 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 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. Molecules 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 1800 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.
