Special Issue "Bacterial and Viral Pathogenesis: Insights from Proteomics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: mass-spectrometry based proteomics
Interests: medicinal chemistry; antibacterials; bacterial pathogens; antimicrobial development
Mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics, a cutting-edge molecular technique, has emerged as a promising biotechnological tool in the post-genomic era, particularly in systems biology. Comparative quantitative proteomic platforms not only offer the global expression pattern of thousands of proteins but also unveil the post-translational modifications and potential pathways regulated in the cell under certain conditions. Therefore, the utility of proteomic platforms, including but not limited to discovery proteomics, analysis of post-translationally modified protein/peptides, immuno-proteomics, and mass-spectrometry-based targeted methods have been employed to provide insight into the molecular drivers of bacterial and viral infections in host cells and pathogenesis in plant, animals, etc. Results from these studies have been instrumental in advancing knowledge about pathogen–host interaction, resistance mechanisms, and evolutionary trends and in many instances have revealed promising novel drug targets and novel therapeutical venues.
This Special Issue on “Bacterial and Viral Pathogenesis: Insights from Proteomics" will focus on all aspects of proteomics and infectious disease. We welcome you to submit your original research paper, recent reviews, and commentaries on this topic.

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.
