Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metabolomics, i.e., the comprehensive analysis of metabolites in biological samples, has demonstrated its utility in precision medicine studies of patient stratification and in unbiased biomarker discovery. However, only a limited number of these approaches have been translated to the clinic.

To foster the integration of metabolomics data in precision medicine, further research is needed to address i) quality standards for data generation, storage, sharing, and access to meta-data, ii) consensus on metabolite identification and unknown characterisation, iii) reproducibility in data processing, multi-omics integration, and meta-analysis, and iv) the availability of data for underrepresented populations of patients and healthy subjects.

In this Special Issue, we welcome submissions in the field of metabolomics studies for precision medicine and metabolomics data sharing, platform standardisation, data repositories, computational and statistical strategies for data modelling, meta-analysis, and interpretation.

The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight advances, challenges, and opportunities for the effective implementation of metabolomics in precision medicine, to reinvigorate the interest in sharing metabolomics data, and support the dissemination of shared standards for the development and translation of precision healthcare approaches at large.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2200 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.
