Special Issue "Fluorescence Biosensors 2020"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2021.
Interests: Fluorescence biosensors; enzymatic biosensors; disposable biosensors; nanobiosensors; colorimetric biosensors; nanofiber-based biosensors
Fluorescent biosensors are becoming the most extensively studied analytical devices because easy, rapid, highly sensitive, and specific biosensors contribute to advances in medicine, for use in cancer and drug discovery. Fluorescent biosensors can also probe ions, metabolites, and protein biomarkers with great sensitivity. The development of fluorescent biosensors requires multidisciplinary research in chemistry, molecular biology, biomedicine, and engineering. Fluorescent biosensors can be classified according to the type of biorecognition elements, such as enzymes, antibodies, nucleic acids, receptors, and whole cells, and the mode of fluorescence detection, such as fluorescence intensity, fluorescence decay time, ratiometric fluorescence intensity. That is, the main building blocks of fluorescent biosensors are fluorescence emission of organic and inorganic fluorescence materials and immobilization methods of biological elements, where the main challenges are to serve wide fields with an enormous impact on healthcare, agriculture, food, and environmental monitoring.
This Special Issue aims to introduce recent progress in the research and application of fluorescent biosensors, promoting a synergy of several complementary competences in the research community.

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.
