Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The post-genomic era led to a huge and continuously increasing number of entries in protein databases. This, coupled with technologies allowing unprecedented annotation quality, provide the means to understand the evolution of protein families which are currently poorly described. For this Special Issue, we recruit manuscripts integrating bioinformatic analysis and discussing proteins’ evolution, either as a process or focused on specific motifs/domains. The use of data from multiple species or strains is highly recommended. We will discuss the multiple faces of molecular evolution, from sequences to structures to functions, leveraging on the recent developments in protein features prediction and system biology.

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. Biomolecules 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 2700 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.
