Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Several conformational diseases involve the misfolding of short peptides and/or small proteins. The lack of structure of small peptides and the fast secondary structure conversion dynamics of these ensembles require the combination of several experimental and computational biophysics methods. Combinations of biophysics methods such as spectroscopies and microscopies together with bioinformatics and molecular dynamics simulations and cellular biology approaches are now the golden standard to study these complex systems. For this Special Issue, reviews, methods, communications, and original articles regarding the study of a plethora of peptides and proteins that undergo misfolding pathways leading to pathophysiology are most welcome.

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. 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 2100 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.
