Special Issue Information
In 2008, Osamu Shimomura, Martin Chalfie and Roger Tsien were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for “the discovery and development of the green fluorescent protein, GFP”. Indeed, since its cloning and characterization in the early 1990s, this fluorescent protein has become one of the most useful and versatile molecular tools in modern science. Osamu Shimomura characterized the chromophore of GFP and elucidated the mechanism of bioluminescence in Aequora victoria. Martin Chalfie expressed the protein in heterologous expression systems, and Roger Tsien developed a multitude of applications and mutants of fluorescent proteins. The possibilities and applications of GFP and its variants seem endless, with new disruptive technologies and assays emerging each year spanning across the fields of biology, chemistry, biophysics, and medicine.
This Special Issue showcases original research on a selection of new developments, including in vitro and in vivo applications of fluorescent protein-based technologies. Special focus is dedicated to fluorescent protein-based sensing and detection systems, as well as review articles on these topics.

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. 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 2200 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.
