Special Issue "Natural Products Metabolomics"
A special issue of Metabolites (ISSN 2218-1989).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019)
To identify and quantify metabolites in extracts of natural products is a challenging and urgent task. Metabolomics is a high-performance analytical technique globally-used to measure low molecular weight metabolites, allowing the simultaneous metabolic comparison of different biological samples. Although plants are recognized as prolific sources of bioactive substances, the traditional approach to the discovery of new molecules is time consuming and laborious. In this Special Issue of Metabolites, the use of NMR- or MS-based metabolomics is proposed as an efficient approach to find bioactive metabolites in plants and microorganisms. The coverage of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
- Metabolomics analysis of plants under Climate change.
- Metabolomics characterization of plant extracts.
- Metabolomics of the interaction plant-endophytic organisms.
- Metabolomics screening of biological activities. (antioxidant, antibacterial, antidiabetic, bioplaguicides, etc.)
- Metabolomics of medicinal plants.
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 papers will be 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 1000 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.
