As we know, our gut microbiota is diverse among individuals and each has its own unique profile. It is because of the difference in genetic origin, habit, lifestyle, cuisine, and so on. These factors depend on regional and racial diversity. Asia is one of the largest and most populous continents, including unique and various characteristics; thus, gut microbiota in Asia might also be characteristic.
The aim of this Special Issue is to spotlight the gut microbiota research in Asia, including the effect of Asian cuisine/ingredients to structural/functional difference of gut microbiota, metabolic interaction within bacteria or the host immune response, and pathogenicity in inflammatory disease. We invite colleagues to contribute original research articles or reviews related to their research. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Structure and function of the microbiota
- Microbial community genetics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics
- Interaction within the microbiota
- Metabolic interaction with the host
- Inflammatory diseases
- Interaction with the immune system
- Microbial biodegradation of nutrients and xenobiotics
- Microbial ecology
- Microbial functions in the different habitats within the gut
- Metabolic flux analysis
- Analysis of functionalities by stable isotope probing (DNA, RNA and protein)
- Model systems for studying microbiome biology
- Novel technologies for the analysis of structure and function of the 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 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 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.
