The fast growth of world energy consumption, environmental pollution, and waste discharge require sustainable energy production and waste recovery technology. The molecular and bioelectrochemical techniques for quantitative detection of microorganisms or power generation have been available for environmental survey. In recent years, many new molecular techniques, e.g., quantitative PCR and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), have been developed intensively. This Special Issue, entitled “The Application of Biosensors in Environmental Survey and Energy Production”, was proposed for the international journal Biosensors, which is an SCI journal (2019 IF = 3.240). This Special Issue mainly covers original research which relates to the above mentioned topic, including bioelectricity generation, microbial electrochemistry, environmental survey, and molecular techniques. Papers selected for this Special Issue are subject to a peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results. The Special Issue aims to focus on the recent development of biosensing strategies applied to environmental survey and energy production research. Furthermore, the Special Issue provides an overview on recent achievements and stimulates ideas about the current and future research in the biosensors field. Both original papers and review articles are welcome. I look forward to receiving your outstanding research outcomes.

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.
