Every cell experiences stress in its life cycle, but its capacity to counteract it makes the difference in terms of adaptation, aging, and, ultimately, cell death. Specific stress responses depend on multiple factors related to the timing of stress exposure, the stressor’s concentration, the cell growth phase, and the surrounding environment. The budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is an invaluable model organism for studying the molecular mechanisms underlying stress responses and regulating cell fate. The knowledge gained in yeast, together with the evolutionary conservation of genes, proteins, and pathways, represents a useful asset for studies in other relevant systems, enabling the translation to humans. This Special Issue aims to focus on:
- The role of environmental conditions on cell stress responses;
- The interplay between stress and nutrient signaling pathways in cell fate determination and aging;
- The hormesis paradigm in adaptive stress response;
- The relevance of stress responses in industrial fermentation processes;
- Omics and systems biology approaches in yeast.

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. 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 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.
