Special Issue "Applying Systems Biotechnology Tools to Study Cell Metabolism"
A special issue of Bioengineering (ISSN 2306-5354).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2017).
Interests: multi-omics; metabolic flux analysis; genome editing; metabolic engineering; synthetic biology; systems biology
Cell metabolism is a complex system composed of thousands of cell components, including genes, proteins, and metabolites. In the past two decades, systems biotechnologies, such as multi-omics analysis, have seen increasing applications and successes in uncovering novel metabolic pathways, discovering regulatory network of cell metabolism, and predicting cell performance. Instead of focusing on a few biological targets, systems biotechnologies study the cell metabolism as a whole and provide holistic views of the entire biological system. With recent advances of analytical and computational approaches, we envision that numerous novel discoveries could be provided and revolutionize our understanding of cell metabolism.
The current Special Issue emphasizes development and application of state-of-the-art systems biology technologies to decode cell metabolism. It will also feature the industrial applications of systems biotechnologies for improving cell performance.
We look forward to receiving your contributions to this exciting Special Issue.
Prof. Xueyang Feng, Ph.D.
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. Bioengineering is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
