Synthetic biology provides novel approaches for rebuilding existing biological systems or redesigning new ones from scratch for various applications. Over time, the so-called “bottom-up” synthetic biology has expanded to many research subjects, including biology, chemistry, computational sciences, and engineering. The state-of-the-art concepts and strategies of synthetic biology can also activate and shape the future of vaccine development into the next generation. Thus, we would like to invite researchers worldwide to contribute to this Special Issue with recent advances in the vaccine/antibody production and mechanism study armed with rational designs from synthetic biology. We welcome high-quality mini-review and research articles with results from various host models aimed at either laboratory or industrial level. Articles on synthetic cell-based antigen display or drug delivery systems are also welcome.

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.
