Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pathway mapping plays an important role in metabolomics studies, allowing the analysis of metabolic networks from a systems biology perspective. This Special Issue is focused on advanced tools and methodologies for pathway mapping and applications that demonstrate the critical role of pathway mapping in metabolomics studies. These approaches include the incorporation of isotopic labeled precursor compounds to study the metabolic architecture of pathways within a system, and new developments in pathway mapping tools that use genomic databases or models to improve the biochemical interpretation of metabolomics data. Topics to be covered in this Special Issue focus on recent developments and applications of pathway mapping approaches in biological systems, use of isotopic labeling with advanced technologies to monitor changes in metabolic pathways and software for pathway-centric data processing and visualization of metabolomics data.

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.
