Special Issue "Deciphering Trypanosomatids by Using Molecular Biology and Omics Methods"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2022) | Viewed by 3677
Trypanosomatids belong to a group of unicellular parasites of considerable medical importance. These organisms have a peculiar molecular physiology, which makes them interesting models for studying non-canonical pathways in cellular functioning. Molecular biology, at first, and omics later have contributed to understanding the biology and pathogenicity of these organisms. In this Special Issue, we intend to provide an overview of the most recent advances in these areas, putting together the focal approach given by molecular biology with the global view achieved by the study of omics in trypanosomatids.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
DNA replication and repair;
Cell metabolism and bioenergetics;
Life cycle, cell cycle and differentiation.

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. Pathogens 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.
