Special Issue "Experimental and Computational Methods for Membrane Protein Design"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2021.
Interests: membrane proteins; neuroscience; biophysics; biotechnology; bioinformatics
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Interests: biology of membrane proteins
Membrane proteins are essential players of life physiology, and are the target of an important number of pharmacological drugs. As membrane proteins are elusive subjects, advances in the understanding of their structure–function relationships have often been accomplished thanks to the development of biochemical and computational methods for protein design.
This Special Issue aims at gathering a series of reviews, methods, communications, and original articles towards understanding the structure, dynamics, and function of membrane proteins where protein design has played some role. Contributions opening the field to new subjects such as membrane protein de novo design, protein engineering, evolution, systems biology, etc. are most welcome. Feel free to extend this invitation to your close collaborators.

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. Membranes 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 1400 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.
