Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the genome sequencing of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in 1996, a great deal of useful and remarkable research has been published, highlighting the potential role of yeasts in several areas of life. Furthermore, the development of several “omics” approaches have given rise to a plenitude of new visions about the holistic potential of yeasts to several industrial processes. Systems biology represents the integrative study of entire pathways and processes at a molecular level, by combining these different omics approaches. It involves the understanding of a biological system through the mathematical and computational modelling of interactions between system components. Although the systems biology concept has long existed, only in the last decade has it become possible to develop high-throughput technologies that allow the generation of precise data, together with the mathematical power to analyze it. These changes were the key to starting to understand, with greater detail and precision, the dynamic phenomena observed in the living world.

This Special Issue on "Recent Advances in Yeast Systems Biology Research" aims to collect and review the latest advances in yeast systems biology research. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Yeast metabolomics, proteomics, and transcriptomics;
  • Gene annotation and variability;
  • Genome-wide assays towards comparative “omics” approaches;
  • Yeasts as cell factories;
  • New methods to improve computational systems biology;
  • Big Data;
  • Yeast systems biology applied to the understanding of human diseases.

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. Processes 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 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.
