Special Issue "Towards Integrated Multi-omics Analyses of Environmental Microbiota"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2019
Prof. Dr. Martin Von Bergen
Microbial communities are responsible for energy and nutrient cycling and are massively involved in the planet’s sustainability. Microbes are directly involved in the dynamics of climate change via their impact on the destabilization, mineralization, and sequestration of organic matter. The facets of microbial diversity consist of morphological, structural, metabolic, ecological or evolutionary diversity; however, the central question in microbial ecology is “who eats what, where and when?” means how is the key player in the community to perform the most meaningful activity. To answer this, one major task is to identify the relationships between the composition of the microbial community and the functional processes.
For this Special Issue of Microorganisms, we invite you to send contributions concerning any aspects relating to microorganisms utilized in environmental applications, including to ecology, diversity, physiology, detection methods and processes. The Special Issue will be devoted to topics microbial communities including the multi-omics technologies and cross-disciplinary studies dedicated to basic and/or applied 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 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 1000 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.
