Special Issue "Microbial Proteomics"
A special issue of Proteomes (ISSN 2227-7382).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2015).
Interests: microbial physiology; stress and starvation response of bacteria; physiological proteomics of bacteria; proteomic view of pathogenicity of bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus etc.)
Interests: microbial proteomics; metaproteomics; environmental proteomics; microbial biofilms; quorum sensing; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; Burkholderia sp.
State-of-the-art functional genomics technologies provide a panoramic view of microbial physiology and of the complex molecular interactions between microbes and their hosts. In particular, proteomics, by focusing on proteins as the “workhorses” of life, has revolutionized our perception of microbes by providing comprehensive qualitative and quantitative information on the protein composition of single cells, and on entire ecosystems. Consequently, proteomics has become an indispensable tool in microbiology for investigating central research topics ranging from global analyses of microbial physiology to investigations of the molecular interactions between commensal and pathogenic microbes and their hosts.
This Special Issue will outline the latest highlights of microbial proteomics research, and will also document the still existing challenges, together with innovative strategies suited to overcome methodological drawbacks. We will review current studies in medical, environmental, and applied microbiology employing proteomics to generate essential knowledge on the multi-layered network constituting microbial life between genome and environment, and thereby complementing hypothesis-driven, targeted research strategies.

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. Proteomes is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
