    Special Issue on Metabolic Engineering


    Metabolic Engineering refers to use genetic engineering technology to transform cell metabolism and also improve the performance of the cell. Metabolic engineering technology could fabricate some special chemical products through changing the cell metabolic pathways, such as E. coli could produce paclitaxel metabolites. As one of the main modern biological technology, metabolic engineering will play a tremendous potential in terms of synthesis of chemicals and pharmaceuticals by microbial fermentation.


    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore metabolic engineering. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    •  Gene modification
    •  Microbial fermentation
    •  Metabolic flux
    •  Metabolic enzymes
    •  Microbial engineering
    •  Metabolic engineering principle, method and pathways


    Authors should read over the journal’s Authors’ Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly note that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title should be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Metabolic Engineering” should be selected during your submission.


    Also please note the following timetable:
