Special Issue "Fungi: What Have We Learned From Omics?"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2022.
Fungi have been long referred to as an understudied and under-understood group of organisms. Fungi are also described as being excellent producers of compounds with activities that can be used in numerous industries, from the food industry to agriculture and health industries. Last but definitely not least, some species are pathogenic to humans (luckily not that many), other animals, plants, and virtually to all eukaryotes.
Characterizing a fungus is still a challenge: fungi are diverse in nature, in lifestyles, and in terms of many other characteristics. The advent of omics—from genomics to metabolomics—brought many promises of elucidating the molecular mechanisms that govern fungi physiology. This Special Issue aims to reveal how and what omics have contributed to unravel the fungi complexity. We welcome research and review manuscripts in which omics are used to understand (but are not restricted to): fungal interactions with the environment/hosts, infection or biocontrol mechanisms, and molecular networks that govern the adaptation to new environments or the production of new compounds.

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.
