Special Issue "Electrochemical DNA/RNA Biosensors"
A special issue of Biosensors (ISSN 2079-6374).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018).
Interests: Biosensor; Biochips; Electrochemistry; Material Chemistry; Analytical Chemistry; Nanotechnology
Today, there is an increasing demand to develop new methods and systems that enable the detection of DNA and RNA as biomarkers for various interests. Electrochemical DNA or RNA biosensor devices present diverse possibilities as analytical tools, which are able to exploit the current developments in nanotechnology, as well the possibility to go to a point of care system. Adaptation of such technologies to various analytical applications, such as diagnosis, water control, food safety, and environmental analysis, is attracting considerable attention.
We invite authors to submit original research and review articles on novel systems or approaches in electrochemical DNA/RNA biosensors. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Innovative concepts in sensitive DNA or RNA detection
- New materials and nanomaterials used in DNA Biosensor devices: Carbon nanotubes, graphene, nanoparticles, and other organic-based semiconductors
- Devices and microfluidic systems including electrochemical DNA biosensors
- Electrochemical DNA detection analysis in situ and in vivo

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 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.
