A special issue of Metabolites (ISSN 2218-1989).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2018)

Metabolomics aims at the comprehensive quantitative analysis of all metabolites in a biological system, as well as their dynamics, composition, interactions, and responses to interventions or a specific physiological state. Unlike most compound-specific analyses of traditional clinical chemistry, metabolomics systematically permits studies of the metabolome, and offers deeper insights into deciphering biological processes. Systematic metabolomics analysis at the right time-points provides new molecular insights that assist in the elucidation of metabolic dysregulation underlying disease development, which improves risk prediction—a crucial step for the advancement of prevention and treatment strategies. In addition, the metabolomics approach correlates broad biochemical changes with health and disease states, and advanced statistical metabolic modeling allows the identification of biomarkers with good predictive power. This Special Issue of Metabolites is dedicated to Clinical Metabolomics. The aims and scope of this Special Issue will include, but are not limited to, in-born errors of metabolism, biomarker discovery, metabolic syndromes, systems biology, and personalised and translational medicine.

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.
