Special Issue "Electroporation Systems and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2020.
Interests: bioelectromagnetics; bioelectronics; high-power electronics; electromagnetic field effects; electroporation
Electroporation is a phenomenon of biological cell membrane permeabilization triggered by a pulsed electric field, and is accompanied by the electro-transfer of target molecules inside or outside the cell. It is widely used in biomedicine, food processing, biotechnology, and other applied sciences. Depending on the electric field parameters, a variety of electroporation-mediated biological effects can be triggered requiring state-of-the-art technological platforms for pulse generation, metrology, and application. As a result, the development of electroporation systems is constantly performed, and the array of applications is systemically expanded. This Special Issue is dedicated to all aspects of applied electroporation research and the development of pulsed power devices.

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. Applied Sciences 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 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.
