Bioinformatics analysis methods for metabolomics data have undergone considerable improvements in the last decade, and these methods have a strong effect on both the speed and the accuracy of metabolomics studies. Still, it seems unlikely that metabolomics investigations are extracting all potential knowledge from their collected data, and the development of improved bioinformatics methods for analyzing metabolomics data are needed. This Special Issue is devoted to computational techniques for analyzing metabolomics data. Topics that will be covered by this Special Issue will include (not exclusively): statistical methods for analyzing metabolomics samples, metabolite structure identification, visualization of metabolomics data, pathway-based data analysis, metabolomics and metabolic modeling, and metabolomics-related databases.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. 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 page. Metabolites is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 850 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
