Interests: proteomics of antibiotic resistant bacteria isolated from animals; fast profiling by mass spectrometry of animal welfare in food and in biological fluids; resistome analysis; protein markers of metabolic disorders and fertility.
Proteomics allows the full characterization of protein content in complex matrices. A tissue or a biological fluid can represent the matrix, and it is possible to uncover the nature, relative abundance, and related post-translational modifications of such a dynamic proteome. Technological innovations in electrophoresis, chromatography, and mass spectrometry lead to the development of wider applications of proteomics.
The application of proteomics to veterinary medicine is able to simultaneously provide important information about the modulation of thousands of proteins and to define cause–effect relationships between expression and post-translational modifications of proteins in healthy and diseased conditions. Moreover, it can be used to rapidly assess animal welfare through fast profiling, to evaluate food safety in animal products, and to investigate the complex relationship between the host and the pathogenic or nonpathogenic microbial communities.
In the light of these premises, we invite investigators to provide their contributions under the form of review articles or original research articles. The main topic will be related to proteomics applications in the field of veterinary medicine, including in vitro and in vivo systems. The final aim is to provide a collection of contributions to the knowledge in veterinary medicine on the topic of proteomics.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Animals is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
