Special Issue "Advances on Bacterial Genomics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2021).
Interests: bacterial classification and genomics; population diversity; serological and molecular diagnostics; epidemiology
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Genome sequence-based investigations are emerging as a key area in bacterial research. Bacterial interactions with the host—and infection severity—depend on genome constituents. There has been a tremendous increase in bacterial genome-wide analyses. In this Special Issue, we intend to highlight the genome-wide analyses of pathogenicity determinants, CRISPR-Cas, type secretion systems, antimicrobial, EPS, and other important areas of genomics. Our aim is to provide a collection of manuscripts that describe the genomic biology and analyses of different bacterial pathogens. Research articles and reviews are invited.
Submissions on—but not limited to—the following topics are invited:
- Genome-wide comparative genomics;
- Bacterial phylogenomics, evolution, and speciation;
- Functional genomics;
- Analyses of pathogenicity determinants and CRISPR cas;
- Genome-informed molecular diagnostics.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
