Currently, whole-cell biosensors are widely used in the fields of biotechnology, genetic engineering, molecular biology, and biochemistry. Applications of whole-cell biosensors include the general and specific detection of toxic agents, as well as the study of medicines, new substances produced in the chemical industry, and various natural biologically active substances. Whole-cell biosensors are effectively used to determine mechanisms of action of chemical compounds and nanoparticles on cells, as well as to monitor environment pollution. There are two main options in the use of cells as sensors: (1) monitoring the processes of vital activity after treatment with one or more substances with an assessment of general toxicity by examining the decrease in viability and (2) monitoring the induction of sensory systems, including stress response systems with a determination of the class of toxicant or biologically active substance. Both natural unicellular organisms and cell lines and those specially created via genetic engineering are used as whole-cell biosensors.
The current Special Issue is devoted to current trends in the development and application of whole-cell biosensors.

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 2700 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.
