Aims and scope

Systems Microbiology and Biomanufacturing (SMAB) aims at providing a platform for high-quality research in the interdisciplinary areas of industrial microbiology and biomanufacturing process development.

Papers of SMAB deal with the following aspects:

· Food Microbiology and Biotechnology

Brewing microbiome, fermentation food engineering, food enzymology, lactic acid bacteria and probiotics, and food ingredient biomanufacturing.

· Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology

Evolutionary engineering, recombinant protein expression, protein engineering, directed evolution, and biocatalysis.

· Metabolic Engineering and Synthetic Biology

Rational and systems metabolic engineering, synthetic gene expression regulatory elements, genetic circuit construction and dynamic pathway regulation, gene assembly and genome engineering, and non-native or non-natural product biosynthesis.

· Fermentation Engineering

Advanced monitoring technology for fermentation, product fermentation and separation, bioprocess engineering and bioreactor, intelligent monitoring and advanced control technology, and systems fermentation engineering.
