The International Conference, Lakeside Conference on Protein Toxins and Effectors (LakesidePTE) focuses on mechanistic studies on protein toxins and effectors. The next LakesidePTE Conference will be held on 2-4 October 2022 at the Abbey Resort in Lake Geneva, WI, USA.
The Organizing Committee is collaborating with Toxins to call for a Special Issue related to the research presented during LakesidePTE. We are inviting, in person or virtual, registrants of the conference to submit a manuscript or review that has not been previously published. We will accept research articles, short communications, and review articles. We anticipate that articles will contain new and important findings discussed during the conference including mechanistic aspects of protein toxin and effector action, the discovery of new protein toxins or effectors, and the study of protein toxin or effector action within cells, and will engage in interbacterial competition, using cellular microbiology approaches. All submissions will be peer-reviewed.

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 double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Toxins is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2700 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.
