Special Issue "Emerging Trend in DNA Nanotechnology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2019).
Interests: DNA nanotechnology; bionanotechnology; self-assembled and biohybrid materials; drug-delivery applications; nanolithography; molecular electronics; plasmonics
During recent years, DNA nanotechnology has taken significant leaps towards real-life applications, as programmable and fully addressable DNA nanostructures have provided a plethora of intriguing implementations—for example, in drug delivery, plasmonics, biochemistry, biology, nanofabrication, super-resolution imaging, as well as mechanical and dynamic molecular devices. Advanced design methods and software have enabled a customized and straightforward synthesis of complex DNA nanostructures for manipulating materials at nanoscale and for harnessing them in a user-defined way. I am hereby pleased to announce that scientifically valid and technically sound papers related to any aspect of DNA nanotechnology—with an emphasis on the emerging trends in the field (listed as the keywords)—will be considered for this Special Issue. Each manuscript will be handled by the editorial board and peer-reviewed by referees.
Adj. Prof. Dr. Veikko Linko
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 2000 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.
