Special Issue in Metabolites: Metabolomic Applications in Animal Science Volume 2
Special Issue Information
Metabolomics has been a useful method for various study fields. However, its application in animal science seems not enough. Metabolomics will be useful for various studies in animal science: Animal genetics and breeding, animal physiology, animal nutrition, animal products (milk, meat, eggs, and their byproducts) and their processing, livestock environment, animal biotechnology, animal behavior, and animal welfare. More application examples and protocols for animal science will promote more motivation to use metabolomics effectively in the study field. Our previous Special Issues (volume 1 and volume 2) could promote these to some extent. However, they still seem not enough.
Therefore, in this Special Issue, I invite research and review articles for “Metabolomic Applications in Animal Science”. Unlike before, the study fields are limited to animal physiology, animal nutrition, animal products and their processing, livestock environment, animal behavior, and animal welfare. The contribution to animal science should be clearly stated in the manuscript. The main methods used should be mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, or other suitable techniques. Not only nontargeted but also targeted analysis of metabolites is welcome. The topics include dietary and pharmacological interventions, metabolic flux analysis, genetic manipulations, in vitro/in vivo imaging, and protocols for metabolomic experiments.
The Special Issue is open for submission now. Some extensions may be granted if you kindly let me know in advance. Accepted papers will be published rapidly and will be listed together on the Special Issue website.
