Special Issue "Microbial C1 Metabolism"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2015).
Interests: methane biocatalysis; microbial genetics, physiology and biochemistry; systems biology, metabolic modeling and engineering; functional diversity of microbial methane cycle and environmental impacts of climate change
One-carbon (C1) compounds, which include methane, methanol, and other methylated compounds, are important metabolites in the global carbon cycle. Recent years have seen a number of major breakthroughs in understanding the details of microbial C1 metabolism, including discoveries of novel metabolic strategies and novel taxa involved in global C1 cycling. This Special Issue aims to cover the modern aspects of the unique metabolic properties exhibited by microbes active in the conversion of C1 compounds, in both aerobic and anaerobic environments. We especially welcome studies describing insights from the –omics approaches. Both original research and review type papers are invited. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following: Genomics and metagenomics of C1 metabolism; Systems level studies of microbes involved in C1 cycling; Ecology of natural and engineered communities with active C1 metabolism; C1-based biotechnological applications; Evolution of C1 metabolism; and C1 cycling in nature and climate change.

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. 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 2000 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.
