Special Issue "Bioinformatics in Metabolomics"
A special issue of Metabolites (ISSN 2218-1989).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018)
Over the past decade and a half, bioinformatics has evolved from the role of being a support science to now becoming an integral part of all areas of metabolomics. Bioinformatic-defined models and solutions are part of the entire workflow of metabolomics, starting from methodically defining and capturing an experiment using standards, managing the vast amount of high-throughput data arising from these experiments, making sense of these data using data processing and statistical analysis methods, and finally relating the findings back to the underlying question using data integration, pathway analysis and visualization models. This Special Issue focuses on bioinformatics methods, tools, systems and solutions in metabolomics. Specific areas include, but not limited to, data standards, data management solution, database systems, data processing and statistical methods, pathway analysis and visualization techniques.

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.
