We are announcing a Special Issue on “Application of CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) Cas Systems for Biosensing”. CRISPR, a powerful gene-editing tool, has demonstrated its capability as a powerful recognition element in biosensing. Owing to the high specificity and modularity of CRISPR Cas systems, CRISPR-based biosensing systems have shown promising accuracy and sensitivity for the detection of nucleic acids. The utilization of CRISPR for both electrochemical biosensors and optical biosensors highlights the importance of multi-disciplinary contributions to sensing science as an imminent biosensing area. For this Special Issue, we invite research with different modalities to describe different perspectives on CRISPR-based biosensing systems. Specifically, the following issues are of scientific interest to this Special Issue: the methods of integrating CRISPR into various biosensing systems; the role of CRISPR Cas systems in the design of biosensing strategies; and the difference between conventional nucleic acid probe-based recognition elements and CRISPR-based recognition elements. Contributed manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by well-qualified reviewers, and a rapid decision on the status of the manuscript will be made by the Editorial Board of Biosensors based on the results of the review.
We invite you to submit your manuscript(s) to this Special Issue on the Application of CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) Cas Systems for Biosensing. The deadline for submission to this Special Issue is December 31, 2020.

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. Biosensors 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 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.
