Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Metabolomics is being increasingly appreciated as an integral part of systems biology. Possessing the advantage of affording a holistic view of metabolism, metabolomics has been used repeatedly over the past decade in the study of the effects of exercise, both acute and chronic, on human and animal metabolism. Thus, the field of exercise metabonomics has emerged, which can be defined as the large-scale, comprehensive study of the effects of exercise on the metabolome. The aim of this Special Issue is to advance this field by providing a forum for the presentation of research findings based on a metabolomics approach and related to the modulation of metabolism by different exercise parameters (such as type, intensity, duration, and whether it is acute or chronic), characteristics of the exercising organism (such as sex, age, nutritional state, training state, and the genome), and environmental factors (such as ambient temperature and hypoxia).
