Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is well known that environment–host–microbe interactions (which provide insight into nutritional status) can affect epigenetic mechanisms and shape human metabolism through the long-term regulation of gene expression. This is particularly crucial in the first 1000 days of life. Additionally, growing scientific evidence supports the idea that epigenetic signatures may affect nutrient metabolism and, consequently, health status. Accordingly, the onset and progression of metabolic diseases, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, fatty liver disease, and cardiovascular disorders, may involve epigenetic mechanisms. These include DNA methylation marks, covalent and non-covalent histone modifications, microRNA/non-coding RNA expression (in circulation or in tissues), telomere length, and imprinting phenomena. In this context, genomic, metagenomic, and nutrigenomic studies allow epigenetic biomarkers to be identified for predictive purposes and innovative intervention strategies to be designed for disease prevention or monitoring purposes by targeting the epigenome. Therefore, Nutrients welcomes the submission of manuscripts, either describing original research or reviewing scientific literature studies, on the topic of “Epigenetic Biomarkers in Nutrigenomics and Metabolomics”, highlighting recent advances in the discipline for the prevention, management, and prognosis of metabolic diseases under a precision nutrition scope.

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.
