Submission Status: Open   |   Submission Deadline: 31 December 2023

Microbial Cell Factories is calling for submissions to our Collection on Characterizing biosynthesis for bioproduction: Systems biology and production processes.

This special collection presents articles investigating biosynthetic pathways and methods in bacteria and fungi for bioproduction. Work describing new technical solutions of metabolites biosynthesis and applications in the food/feed, chemical, medical sectors are encouraged. Special consideration will be given to studies investigating the antimicrobial activity or bioactivity of bioproducts. Articles in this collection focus on two main areas:

1- Systems biology of cell factories

  • Separation, purification and characterization of metabolites synthesized by cell (bacteria/yeast) factories.
  • Novel bacterial production of metabolites and antimicrobial bioproducts. 

2- Microbial production processes

  • The biosynthesis pathway of materials including saccharides, acids, secondary metabolites or peptides, and the alternative biosynthesis approach instead of chemical synthesis.

This Collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 7, SDG 11 and SDG 12.

Submission Guidelines

This Collection welcomes submission of Research Articles, Data Notes, Case Reports, Study Protocols, and Database Articles. Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have read our submission guidelines. Articles for this Collection should be submitted via our submission system, Snapp. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a Collection, please select Characterizing biosynthesis for bioproduction: Systems biology and production processes from the dropdown menu.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.

The Guest Editors have no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Guest Editors have competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
