Special Issue "Breath Analysis in Metabolomics"
A special issue of Metabolites (ISSN 2218-1989).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2014)
Based on technological developments of the last decade, including progress with respect to sample preparations, analytical techniques, and informatics for data processing, metabolomics has become an essential tool for exploring the frontiers of emerging medical and biotechnological fields using exhaled breath. This Special Issue of Metabolites, "Breath Analysis in Metabolomics," will be dedicated to analytical techniques dealing with breath analysis, including sensors and spectrometers and data mining and handling procedures. Objects could be humans, animals, cell cultures, bacteria among others. The topics that will be covered by this Special Issue include, but are not limited to: identification of metabolites with biological and/or clinical relevance—possibly in relation to the functional genomics, medical or biotechnological application of metabolomic methods used to analyze exhaled breath, metabolic flux analysis based on exhale data, identification and sensitive quantification of diverse metabolites in breath samples, empirical and computational methods of annotating metabolites in breath, the mathematical/statistical modeling of volatile metabolites in breath. Manuscripts dealing with other pertinent challenging issues are also highly desired.

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.
