Special Issue "Principles of Modular Design and Control in Complex Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2020.
Interests: systems and synthetic biology; metabolic engineering; computational biology; CRISPR technology; modular design; modular cell engineering; pathogen inactivation; bioenergy and biofuels; bioesters; microbial robustness
Modular design is at the core of modern engineering, which enables rapid, efficient, and reproducible construction and maintenance of complex systems across applications. Remarkably, modularity has recently been discovered as a governing principle in natural biological systems from genes to proteins to pathways to cells and microbial communities. The convergent knowledge of natural and engineered modular systems will be the key to drive modern biotechnology to address emergent challenges associated with health, food, energy, and the environment. This Special Issue calls for contributions across a broad range of disciplines that address recent experimental, computational and/or modeling advancements in modular design and control of complex systems.

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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 30 June 2020 an APC of 1500 CHF applies. 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.
