Multi-omics approaches utilize a combined set of omics analyses (including genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics) for the same experiment or group of samples. Advances in high-throughput sequencing of microbiomes, together with the development of novel bioinformatics tools to efficiently associate the results of several omics data, have become increasingly significant in microbial research. Moreover, the growing adoption of metagenomics approaches, over 16S rRNA-like biomarkers, allows functional characterizations at the community level. An important challenge in microbial research is how to translate multi-omics measurements into biological insights.
This Special Issue welcomes seminal articles on Multi-omics Approaches in Microbial Research for the identification of health, ecological, and biotechnological associations. Multi-omics approaches considering both community and single-cell metagenomics are welcome. This SI is open to original research articles and reviews covering multi-omics approaches on all sorts of microorganisms (including free-living, host-associated, parasites, domesticated, and probiotics) and microbial communities (including human, animal, plants and environmental microbiomes). Strong methodological articles are also welcome but must be accompanied by a compelling example or case study to demonstrate their applicability in microbial research.

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. Microorganisms 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 2700 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.
