    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    Living microorganisms transform organic material, such as sugars, into useful components through the process of fermentation. We use the term precision fermentation to distinguish between general metabolic fermentation and product-specific fermentation. Microbes serve as microscopic cell factories in precision fermentation and are designed to create a particular product. In strain engineering, the microorganism is given instructions on how to create specific substances. The bacteria are cultivated in massive quantities, frequently in the hundreds of millions of liters, and fed crucial nutrients to support their growth after being developed.

    The target product is recovered and processed to produce a functional product once a critical mass has been reached. Without the use of animals, companies like Perfect Day, Change Foods, and Formo can produce dairy proteins like whey or casein employing precision fermentation technology. They accomplish this by transplanting the DNA sequence of the dairy protein to microorganisms like yeast or fungi, placing them in fermentation tanks like those used to brew beer, and enabling them to develop simple plant-based nutrients and sugars

    Manuscript Submission information

    Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging in to this link. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are 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 on email address:[email protected] 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.
