Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The purpose of this special issue is to present a number of articles highlighting the latest interdisciplinary and innovative research, tools, molecular methods and approaches to detect contaminants and harmful toxins in environmental water, as well as novel and re-emerging water borne pathogens. A special emphasis is also given to methods enabling remediation of chemically and/or biologically contaminated waters.
These topics, which are of paramount importance for safeguarding human health, will be covered during the International Symposium ”Small Solutions for Big Water-Related Problems Innovative microarrays and small sensors to cope with water quality and food security” to be held in the National Institute of Health, Rome (Italy) on 26–28 October, 2014.
