Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Host–microbiota interaction is essential in promoting local and systemic homeostasis. The gut microbiota influences homeostatic equilibrium of distal organs through a number of communication axes. These signalization pathways are modulated by the production of bioactive metabolites. Despite the importance of these communication pathways in keeping organ homeostasis, our knowledge of the underlying regulatory mechanisms and the molecular players participating in host–microbiota interaction is still limited.

With this Special Issue in BioTech, we aim to provide an update and future directions in the mechanisms governing host–microbiota crosstalk. Contributions can be either original articles or reviews covering current knowledge and potential novel mechanisms that can participate in the communication between the host and their microbes in health and disease.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. BioTech 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 1600 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.
