Emergence of anti-microbial resistance among major bacterial pathogens became a major public health threat affecting humans worldwide. The bacterial resistance to antibiotics includes molecular mechanisms including mutational adaptations, acquisition of genetic material, and alteration of gene expression of resistance genes. These mechanisms implement bacterial adaptation and evolution against antibiotic stress. Thus, investigating biochemical and genetic basis of anti-microbial resistance is important to develop methods to reduce the spread of resistance and to devise effective treatment approaches against antibiotic resistant bacteria.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
