Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past decade, metabolomic and lipidomic approaches have grown rapidly both from a technical perspective and from a disease diagnosis perspective. These approaches are now considered the first approach to begin to identify biomarkers related to many diseases, both human and plant. This Special Issue of Metabolites is titled “Identification of Disease Biomarkers by Metabolomic and Lipidomic Approaches” and is focused on analytical advances, applied research, and novel informatics methods that can be harnessed to tackle the identification of biomarkers in disease states. Manuscripts that tackle the challenges of identification of unknown diseases are also critical for this area of disease diagnostics, as we often encounter the unknown when studying a new disorder.

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 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 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.
