Special Issue "Plant, Food and Nutritional Metabolomics for Health Enhancement"
A special issue of Metabolites (ISSN 2218-1989).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 December 2018).
The metabolites that make up the metabolome are responsible for maintaining life in an organism, and have been studied to better understand function. The benefit of metabolomics over more conventional studies of metabolism is metabolomics aims to comprehensively detect all of the metabolites within a system, at the same time. This allows a more holistic view of a biological system and the generation of new hypotheses about how differences between groups alter in their metabolic profiles. Metabolomics is being used with increasing frequency within the fields of plant, food and nutritional sciences as a means to gather more comprehensive information about the small molecules present in a given system. This Special Issue will focus on metabolomics applications from plants to foods to their application in in vitro and in vivo systems, and their resulting biological implications. Multi-omics manuscripts and those focusing on data analysis approaches that meet the above aims are also welcome.
Spurred by the Ohio Mass Spectrometry and Metabolomics Symposium in Columbus, OH on May 16-17, 2018, this Special Issue of Metabolites will be open to selected papers from this conference, in addition to other works that fall within the scope of this issue from outside this meeting. If authors have potential interest to submitting to this Special Issue, questions can be directed to the Guest Editor.

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 1400 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.
