Special Issue "Cellular Structural Biology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
The possibility of describing a complete and intact cell with sufficient resolution so as to define its structural components in a fully quantitative way is a major goal in life sciences, with obvious impact on health and on the design of new biomaterials.
In this context, cryo-soft X-ray tomography represents an interesting technique to retrieve information at nanometer resolution, covering full cellular volumes near to native state. Indeed, the high resolution of this technique allows the visualization of the structural organization of cells, their membranes, compartments, organelles and supramolecular assemblies, which makes this method one of the most exciting alternatives to image complete biological cells.
To reflect these advances, the International Journal of Molecular Sciences has designed a Special Issue that is accepting contributions with an emphasis on biophysics, imaging and structural biology, and their integration to provide a view of the cell at multiple scales.

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.
