Special Issue Information
The small nematode Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) represents one of the most important model organisms in biomedical research. Beside a vast array of genetic tools, the C. elegans research toolbox contains many functional genomics tools, such as transcriptomics and proteomics. More recently, metabolomics and lipidomics joined this toolbox, allowing more precise investigations into the metabolism of the nematode in health and disease, as well as in toxicology and environmental applications. The combination of forward and reverse genetics readily available for C. elegans with metabolomics and lipidomics has great promise to improve our knowledge on metabolism and metabolic regulation. This Special Issue is devoted to recent applications of metabolomics and lipidomics to study the metabolism in C. elegans. We are welcoming original articles as well as review articles devoted to different aspects of this field of research. Furthermore, we are also welcoming articles on new in silico methods for the analysis of metabolism in C. elegans.

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 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. 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 2200 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.
