Current molecular nutrition and metabolism research aims to gain insights into the physiological role of nutrients and food components on health status at molecular and cellular levels. Despite the significant amount of research conducted around this subject, the real impact of most food compounds and their mechanisms of action have not yet been fully elucidated. The precise determination of molecular mechanisms underlying the effect of diet and dietary constituents in physiological functions offers a great potential not only in the maintenance of health but also in disease prevention and treatment. To accelerate the effective development of molecular nutrition and metabolism research, omics technologies (e.g., genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics), molecular imaging, and bioinformatics, among others, play a crucial role. The topics that will be covered by this Special Issue include, but are not limited to: health-beneficial effects of bioactive food constituents at a molecular level; identifying new molecular targets of dietary exposure; omics-based methodologies to help advance the field of molecular nutrition research; absorption, digestion, microbial/host metabolism and excretion of dietary nutrients/bioactive compounds; meta-omics approaches to studying the interplay of food or food components with the gut microbiota.

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 1400 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.
