Special Issue "Electrochemical DNA Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2019
This Special Issue is focused on recent achievements in the development of DNA sensors in various fields of medicine, environmental and food safety. First, DNA as a probe can be used for the detection of specific genes in order to detect various diseases, food-borne pathogens or genetically modified organisms. Second, DNA as receptor is rather useful for the detection of various important molecules such as chemotherapeutics that interact with nucleic acids. In addition, DNA is the target of various pharmacologically important molecules, pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals and other molecules that are crucial for medicine, environmental monitoring and for the determination of food quality and safety. Third, DNA aptamers are rather useful receptors that can determine various small molecules, macromolecules and cells with high specificity.

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.
