Special Issue Information
Metabolomics is the investigation of metabolites in any sample type and finds application in diverse areas including biomarker discovery, systems biology, and drug discovery. Within the past decade, it has become evident that microbiota produce a plethora of metabolites that can profoundly affect the human host by impacting physiology and disease development. These microbial communities inhabit the entire surface of the human body including the gastrointestinal tract and skin. The vastly expanded enzymatic repertoire and corresponding (bio)chemical capabilities of the microbiota compared to the human host increases the complexity of metabolomics studies. However, improved methods for the analysis of the host–microbiome co-metabolism are steadily emerging and developing.
This Special Issue highlights an analysis of microbiota metabolism using metabolomics techniques. Current challenges for targeted and untargeted microbiota metabolism studies include sample type selection, sample quality, data handling, as well as the integration of metabolomics and metagenomics data among others. We are seeking submissions describing advances in human microbiota metabolism analysis using metabolomics techniques applied to any sample type, dietary intervention studies, fecal sample investigations, computational analysis, new analytical developments, as well as targeted or untargeted approaches.

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.
