Special Issue "Metabolomics–Integration of Technology and Bioinformatics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2020).
Interests: bioinformatics; data processing; ML and NLP; automation
Interests: mass spec imaging; isotopes; drug metabolism
Metabolomics, by its very nature, is a complex multifaceted discipline. Compounding this complexity has been the dramatic rise in the number of researchers and groups approaching metabolomic technologies with their own unique perspectives, as well as the interest to answer their specific questions or explore their special hypotheses. This increase in population and diversity has prompted an increase in the publications of new methods and software tools.
In this Special Issue of Metabolites, we invite authors to demonstrate their tools and explore the integration of other tools with their technology developments. It is well known that some of the best software integrates many aspects of technology into its design and interface. We feel that this is a feature of some of the most interesting areas of development, and invite developers and users to exhibit these multifaceted developments. We hope to explore a range of different metabolomic technologies in LC–MS, alterative ionization sources, MALDI, and SIMS. Tools that cover later aspects of processing, such as machine learning, but include latent effects of these technology within the model or processing are also encouraged.

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 1800 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.
