Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The effects of genes on metabolic diseases and their relationship to nutrients can be studied at many levels, e.g., genetic variant analysis, genome modification studies unrelated to changes in the nucleotide sequence, tissue-specific RNA or miRNA transcripts evaluations, autophagy and epigenetic research on proteins involved in biological processes.

Recently, several genetic variants associated with susceptibility to various metabolic diseases also related with dietary factors have been identified. Understanding these correlations may influence some metabolic diseases, and the use of appropriate nutritional interventions may modulate the progression or even prevent the disease. Genetic variant analysis has shown that in some carriers with preferential intake of certain nutrients, may negatively affect other beneficial nutrients and make dietary intervention more difficult. Therefore, it is important to understand the mechanisms and interactions between genes, metabolic diseases and nutrients.

This Special Issue aims to address this important topic. Researchers are invited to submit original research, protocol developments, methodological studies, narrative or systematic reviews and meta-analyses in relation to this topic.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2900 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.
