Interests: study of proteome using liquid chromatogray (LC) and capillary zone electrophoresis-mass spectrometry (CZE-MS); developing microreactors and novel sample preparation methods for proteomics; single cell proteomics
Mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics has established itself as an indispensable technology to interpret the information encoded in genomes. Its plays a critical role in molecular and cellular biology, as well as systems biology, due to its ability to identify and, increasingly, precisely quantifying thousands of proteins from complex samples. Although it has achieved tremendous recent success, MS-based proteomics still faces various technical challenges. The Special Issue of Molecules, entitled “Capillary Zone Electrophoresis/Liquid Chromatography(CZE/LC)-MS-Based Proteomics”, welcomes original papers and comprehensive reviews focused on, but not limited, to the improvement of techniques related to CZE/LC-MS-based proteomics, such as novel methods for sample preparation, novel separation techniques, advancements in mass spectrometers, improved methods (software) for data acquisition and analyses, and the applications of MS-based proteomics techniques, such as the study of post-translational modifications (PTMs, e.g., phosphoproteomics, glycoproteomics, etc.) or protein–protein interactions, clinical diagnoses, host cell protein analyses, as well as single-cell proteomics. Please refer to the list of keywords for further topics.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
