Special Issue "Emerging Applications in Synthetic Biology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2018).
Synthetic biology is a rapidly moving field that combines molecular biology approaches with engineering concepts, which has a very large potential impact across all human endeavors. While topics, such as the production of biofuels and industrial chemicals in microorganisms, and gene editing with CRISPR-Cas9, have been the subject of many reviews, we feel that synthetic biology has a much broader array of applications, some of which we would like to highlight in this Special Issue.

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. Genes 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 2000 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.
