Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Temperature is one of the most important factors for the survival of all living organisms. Microbes need sensing and defense mechanisms to adapt to changes in temperature. They adapt to high temperatures through a series of biological processes at the cellular and molecular levels. This Special Issue, “Molecular Mechanism of Microbial Heat Adaptation”, focuses on the molecular mechanisms of microbial heat adaptation, including the changes in nucleic acid structure and regulatory relationship, gene recombination, DNA damage repair, protein structural stability and metabolic adaptation to a high-temperature environment. We welcome researchers who conduct research related to the molecular mechanisms of microbial thermal adaptation to submit research papers or review articles to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Microorganisms 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 2700 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.
