Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Research focusing on the genomic analysis of yeasts has increased considerably in the past few years, being pushed by advances in high-throughput sequencing technologies, development of bioinformatic pipelines, and a better understanding of yeast ecology and diversity. In this Special Issue, we plan to gather research articles focusing on both fundamental and applied research that demonstrate the importance of yeast characterization and evolution and their application in biotechnological processes. The intensive research on yeasts now requires a careful translation to overcome the challenges of finding new isolates with improved biotechnological potential.

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. 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 1800 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.
