Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Advances in sequencing technologies have enabled the scientific community to obtain complete bacterial and human genomes. An important aspect of this endeavor is discerning the epigenome, which will further our understanding of genome function. 

This Special Issue will focus on analyzing sequence data from bacterial and human epigenomes. The scope of this Special Issue includes novel biological techniques, sequencing data, epigenomic information, and analysis tools. It also includes the analysis of bacterial data in the context of infectious diseases and human data in the context of clinical cases.

We invite the research community from both academia and industry to submit their work on bacterial and human epigenomes for this Special Issue. Even though the focus of the Issue is analyzing sequence-level data, we encourage colleagues to submit relevant research work that was performed using methods and technologies apart from sequencing.

This Special Issue will provide a snapshot of current methods and analyses that are being used by the scientific community for understanding bacterial and human epigenomes. We anticipate that these research findings will reveal further insights into genome structure and function.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. BioTech is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1600 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.
