Since prehistoric times, medicinal plants (herbs) and tonics have been used in traditional medical practices for curing diseases and to provide health benefits. A huge array of phytochemicals have been identified in medicinal plants, such as carotenoids, phenolic acids, flavonoids, and lignans, which have a wide range of biological activities, including antioxidant, antibacterial effect, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotection, and so on. Generally, naturally occurring compounds possess complicate bioactive effects and their efficacy is difficult to be clarified. Therefore, comprehensive approaches on the synthesis and biological function of phytochemicals are needed.
In the past decade, multi-omics technology is an emerging field as a powerful tool to gain deep-insights into biological systems. This Special Issue aims to integrate recent innovative approaches using high-throughput technologies (omics), such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, as well as bioinformatics and other related topics, including biotechnology attempts, to make significant progress in understanding the relationship between phytochemicals and human health.

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. Biomolecules is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2000 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.
