Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, sensor research has been undergoing a quiet revolution, promising to have significant impact on a broad range of applications relating to national security, health care, the environment, energy, food safety, and manufacturing. The diversity structure and function of nucleic acids now pays the way for the rational design and wide application of biosensor systems to meet food safety and health monitor needs. Emerging functional nucleic acids (FNA) have the potential to decrease the analysis time and cost of sensors and sensor arrays by orders of magnitude, as well as to increase their sensitivity and accuracy. Soon large numbers of FNA biosensors may be integrated into systems to realize the unification detection of different types of risk factors. Sensors are also beginning to incorporate active elements for self-test, calibration and maintenance. The coming years will likely see a growing reliance on and need for more powerful biosensor systems, with increased performance and functionality. 

Thus, we are interested in the collective novel design ideas in the field of biosensor networks and biosensing systems, their novel recognize biological element, such as functional nucleic acids, their signal amplification and output strategies, their accompanying portable device, and their calibration and standardisation .

For this, it is important to collect the novel rational design biosensor of different risk factors that have been implemented and consider their impacts. Research articles and reviews in this area of study are welcome.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Prof. Dr. Wentao Xu
