Special Issue "BioMolecular Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 March 2020.
Interests: multiplexed sensing; protein–DNA interaction; protein–protein interaction; biomakers; DNA conformational dynamics
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Biomolecular sensing has become a powerful tool in clinical diagnosis, assessment of food quality, forensic analysis, and many more. A myraid of techniques have been developed over the last two decades for a sensitive detection of intended targets, such as small molecules and biomarkers in an increasingly complex setting. Nevertheless, the biosensing field is thriving for more sensitive and specific techniques with no false postitives/negatives for a reliable monitoring of biomarkers in physiological conditions. In this Special Issue on “BioMolecular Sensors”, we welcome original research articles pertaining to biomolecular sensing applied to both the in vitro and in vivo settings. Research articles demonstrating a multiplexed, high-throughput, or ultra-sensitive detection of biomolecules such as nucleic acids and protein biomarkers will be given a higher priority. Please refer to the Keywords below for determining the suitability of your manuscript for this issue. Articles with a high level of scientific rigor and demonstrated reproducibility and specificity will be considered for peer review. Please contact our editorial office (information is provided below) for questions.

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
