Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent development in genomic studies using the model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae has provided great insights into the effect of genetic materials on cell functions and responses. For example, by systematically addressing the phenotypes of specific genetic interventions along a given set of conditions, functional genomics provides a comprehensive and integrated view of the processes that affect yeast physiology in response to the conditions. Furthermore, the development and application of chemical genomic assays using Saccharomyces cerevisiae has provided effective methods to identify the mechanism of action of known drugs and novel small molecules in vivo. These assays identify drug target candidates, genes involved in buffering drug target pathways, and also help to define the general cellular response to small molecules. As such, the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has served as an important model system for genomic studies. In this Special Issue, we welcome all areas of genomic studies using Saccharomyces cerevisiae as the model system to examine basic, translational, and clinical insights with particular interest in chromatin studies.

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 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. Journal of Fungi 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 2200 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.
