The pathogenic fungi are abundant and diverse in China, which not only directly affect the health of plants, animals, and humans but can also produce mycotoxins in China. To control pathogenic fungi, Chinese researchers have made great progress in the species identification, construction of detection methods, and pathogenic mechanism of these fungi. Importantly, mycotoxins, as the most important hazards, threaten the sustainable development of food security and feed safety. Research on the biosynthesis and regulation of mycotoxins is very important for controlling mycotoxins. Detection, especially on-site rapid detection, is a means to discover the risk of mycotoxins. Prediction and early warning is a critical way to prevent and control pollution and hazards of mycotoxins. Meanwhile, detoxification is the ideal way to reduce the hazardous effect of mycotoxins. Hence, this topic is very welcome, but not limited to the research progress of mycotoxin production, biosynthesis, and regulation of mechanisms of secondary metabolites, control of mycotoxins, detection, prediction and early warning, detoxification, and prevention and control for pathogenic fungi and mycotoxins in China.

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 double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Toxins 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 2400 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.
