Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Prediction and intervention of risk factors for chronic noncommunicable diseases are an important issue and previous studies have focused on environmental, genetic, and psychosocial factors. Gut microbiota, known as the second genome of the host, have been shown to play an important role in the development of a variety of chronic diseases, including but not limited to inflammatory bowel disease, neoplasms, cardiovascular disease, immune-related diseases, and psychiatric and neurological-related disorders.
Gut microbiota influence the development of chronic diseases through multiple pathways, including small-molecule metabolites, cell wall components, and direct interactions with live bacteria. Further understanding of the association between gut microbiota composition and chronic diseases in multiple countries and regions will help to explore the role of intestinal flora in chronic diseases and provide useful clues for further research.
This Special Issue is dedicated to exploring new evidence on the association between gut microbiota and chronic diseases.
The topics discussed in this Special Issue will not only focus on the correlation of gut microbiota composition to chronic diseases, but will also further focus on and support the exploration of validation studies of gut microbiota in animals or humans and welcome the related molecular mechanism studies.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
