Bioresources and Bioprocessing (BIOB) plans to publish a Special Issue with the subject of “Advanced Biomanufacturing for Sustainable Future”. This special issue is in liaison with The 1st International Conference for Advanced Biomanufacturing (ICAB 2019), which will be held in Nanjing, China during 11–13 January 2019. All the participants of this exciting symposium are cordially invited to submit their original manuscripts including research articles, rapid communications or mini-reviews to this open-access but free-of-charge journal which is published by the SpringerNature group and sponsored by the State Key Laboratory of Bioreactor Engineering, China. The virtual impact factor of this China-based journal is 1.72 in 2017, as calculated based on the Web of Science. More importantly, to save your valuable time, the peer-review process will be started immediately after the manuscript is submitted to BIOB and each of the accepted papers will be published quickly within 3-5 days in one-by-one mode.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Biocatalysis and Biotransformation
  • Bio-based Materials
  • Metabolic Engineering
  • Synthetic Biotechnology
  • Biorefinery
  • Biomass feedstock
  • Bioindustrial policies and experiences
  • Overview and perspectives of the biomanufacturing market
  • Other topics related to biomanufacturing

All papers and supplementary information (if any) should be submitted online and prepared according to the BIOB guidelinesAuthors should indicate that the paper is submitted for the special issue in their cover letter and is not published or being considered to publish elsewhere.
