Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The heterogeneous class of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) have represented a continuous reservoir of biotechnological productions for millennia. In the light of recent innovative applications for lactic acid fermentations in the different biotechnological sectors and industries (e.g., food production, agricultural and environmental practices, industrial processes, medical and pharmaceutical solutions), this Special Issue will encompass multiple aspects of LAB-based innovations from the biological understanding (e.g., genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and systems biology; bioinformatics; microbial physiology and metabolism) to the biotechnological development (e.g., strain improvement; bioprocess and metabolic engineering; applied genetics and molecular biotechnology), including aspects dealing with industrialization (e.g., scale up of fermentation processes; downstream processing of fermentation products; bioreactor design; monitoring, biosensors and instrumentation; biosafety and biosecurity).

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. Fermentation 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 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.
