The Journal of Proteome Research is preparing to publish a special issue on Proteomics and its Applications in Pandemic Diseases, and its editorial team invites you to submit a manuscript for consideration.
Submission Deadline: June 30, 2020
Proteomics & Pandemics
The modern ease of travel and trade has increased the world’s vulnerability to rapidly transmitted pandemic diseases, which can lead to global hardship, including economic and human loss. We are witnessing this in the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which continues to spread in the absence of a vaccine to prevent infection and drugs to treat it
It is important to understand both COVID-19 and pandemic diseases in general, so we can find vaccines and cures to save precious human lives. Proteomics may play an important role in developing this understanding and has great potential in investigating pathogenesis, molecular mechanism, identifying targets, biomarkers, developing novel therapeutics, and drug repurposing in pandemic diseases.
Call for Papers
Dr. Suman S. Thakur, Senior Scientist in Proteomics and Cell Signaling at the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) in Hyderabad, India, is the Guest Editor for this special issue. He invites you to submit original research and review articles covering these topics connecting proteomics and pandemic diseases:
- Early detection using biomarkers
- Pathogenesis and proteome dynamics
- Molecular and mechanistic details of proteins
- Protein-protein interactions in macromolecular complexes
- Signaling pathways
- Quantitative proteomics: Label-free/label quantitation from bio-fluids and tissues
- Post-translational modifications
- Computational proteomics
- Prevention and vaccination
- Drug response and repurposing of drugs
- Novel targets, therapeutic agents, and their mode of action
Manuscript Requirements & Submission Deadline
Manuscripts must be submitted electronically through the ACS Paragon Plus Environment online submission system by June 30, 2020, and conform to the Journal of Proteome Research Author Guidelines. In your cover letter, please specify that the manuscript is intended for the special issue on Proteomics and its Application in Pandemic Diseases.
