Since the first report of a biosensor by Clark and Lyon in 1962, biosensors have been attracting more and more research interest all over the world and have also been playing increasingly important roles in various applications, which range from public health and environmental monitoring to homeland security and food safety. In recent years, the development of biotechnology and nanotechnology has been further stimulating extensive research into the development of unique biosensors with enhanced sensing performances. Currently, various biological recognition elements, including cofactors, enzymes, antibodies, microorganisms, organelles, tissues, and cells from higher organisms, have been widely used in the fabrication of biosensors. Among these biological elements, microbes and enzymes are the most widely used recognition elements; therefore, this Special Issue aims to bring the state-of-the-art research in microbial and enzymatic biosensors to the sensor and biosensor communities.
In this Special Issue, we solicit review articles, original research papers, and short communications covering all aspects of microbial biosensors and enzymatic biosensors. Topics of primary interest include, but are not limited to, all kinds of microbial biosensors and enzyme biosensors that detect chemical and biological species. Papers discussing the integration of microbes/enzymes with various nanomaterials and novel sensing technologies for chemical and biological detection are also welcome.

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 1800 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.
