Dear Colleagues,
I would like to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue on "Biological Small Angle Scattering: Techniques and Applications" in the Journal Applied Sciences.
Small angle scattering (SAS) in either X-ray or Neutron (SAXS/SANS) has become an essential technique in understanding biological structures and processes. The technique is amenable to samples in solution without crystallization and cryogenic preparation, providing an opportunity to study biomolecules in a more physiologically relevant condition. For example, the ensemble of structural conformations from SAS provides a critical understanding of large flexible and disordered systems. The contrast manipulation by SANS and deuterium labeling provides a viable approach to understand subunit structure in the context of the whole complex.
In this Special Issue, we invite original articles, review articles, and case reports highlighting new developments of the technique and their applications to explore new aspects of biological systems. Those include but are not limited to new instrumentation, sample preparation, sample environment, data process, and analysis methods/software.
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 October 2021.
Please let me know if you have any question. qians@ornl.gov<mailto:qians@ornl.gov>
Best regards,
Dr. Shuo QianGuest EditorKeywords

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com<https://www.mdpi.com/> by registering<https://www.mdpi.com/user/register/> and logging in to this website<https://www.mdpi.com/user/login/>. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form<https://susy.mdpi.com/user/manuscripts/upload/?journal=applsci>. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be 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 to the Editorial Office 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<https://www.mdpi.com/journal/applsci/instructions> page. Applied Sciences<https://www.mdpi.com/journal/applsci/> is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors<https://www.mdpi.com/journal/applsci/instructions> page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC)<https://www.mdpi.com/about/apc/> for publication in this open access<https://www.mdpi.com/about/openaccess/> journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service<https://www.mdpi.com/authors/english> prior to publication or during author revisions.
