Special Issue Information
Metabolomics is a fast-moving field that has gained enormous popularity in recent years. This new concept of unbiased and nontargeted analysis of cell metabolites in a system-wide hypothesis-driven approach has dramatically changed methodological strategies in life sciences. Within a system-wide approach, microbial systems have advantages over higher organisms. Microbes are less complex systems to be studied and exploited; the majority of genomes sequenced to date are from microorganisms, and we know much more about gene regulation, metabolic networks, and physiology of microbial cells than of higher eukaryote systems. In addition, microorganisms are widely used in industrial applications, mainly for the production of foodstuffs and high-value-added bioproducts such as vitamins, amino acids, enzymes, recombinant proteins, bulk chemicals, antibiotics, biopolymers, biofuels, and biopharmaceuticals.
This Special Issue of Metabolites, “Reviews and Advances in Microbial Metabolomics” will be dedicated not only to in-depth applications of metabolomic techniques to study microbial systems, microbial production, fermentation processes, antibiotic resistence, pathogenesis, but also to reporting innovative technology development to characterize microbial metabolism and metabolites. Manuscripts presenting critical reviews on challenging aspects of microbial metabolomics are also highly desired.

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.
