Biological detection has centered around proteins and nucleic acids as targets for several decades. However, many biomarkers associated with human physiological processes and infectious diseases are lipidated sugars, which have an amphiphilic biochemistry. Traditionally, these molecules are also detected using methods that were tailored for proteins, such as immunoassays. However, the physiological presentation of these molecules, their bioanlytical characterization and biophysical properties are very much driven by their biochemistry. In this Special Issue of Biosensors, we invite manuscripts that address the development use of biosensors for the detection, characterization, quantification and exploration of amphiphilic biomarkers.

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. Biosensors 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 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.
