This special issue of Molecules is dedicated to Bioconjugations. Contributions that describe methods for performing selective bioconjugations, materials used for bioconjugations, and methods for characterizing bioconjugates are welcome. This field continues to grow as the variety of biomolecules used for bioconjugation increases. Furthermore, as new materials are explored as biological probes and modifiers, novel methods are needed to link these materials to biomolecules and to characterize the resulting conjugates. I encourage authors to submit research papers and comprehensive reviews for this Special Issue. I hope that the topics covered will reflect the intrinsically interdisciplinary nature of this field.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
