Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The field of structural genomics has been expanding rapidly for several years. The need for high quality analyses of protein structures is valuable to drug design efforts and chemotherapeutic applications. Computational analysis provides a general prediction of biochemical function establishing a foundation for further direct experimentation. Specifically, techniques such as domain identification, homology modeling, in silico drug screening, and pharmacophore identification allow us to develop a greater understanding of the potential roles of these proteins in signal transduction and gene expression. Putative characterizations of hypothetical proteins open doors to novel insights expanding our knowledge of the pathophysiology of both acute and chronic diseases.
Topics of interest in this special issue include, but are not limited to the following:
- Computational protein characterization
- Drug discovery
- Protein structure analysis
- Homology modeling
- Bioinformatics analysis
- High throughput in silico drug screening

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. Sci 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 1200 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.
