Gut microbial communities play a vital role in protecting their hosts against pathogens, regulating immunity, controlling metabolic processes, and are even regarded as a second endocrine organ. However, conventional culture techniques are restricted to the detection of entire microbes of any microbial system. Metagenomic sequencing has achieved progressive development in the investigation of the human gastrointestinal microbiome. Metagenomics can be utilized to explore intestinal microbiome diversity and dysbiosis, as well as its relationship with health and disease. Furthermore, functional metagenomics can discover new functional genes, microbial pathways, antibiotic resistance genes, functional dysbiosis of the intestinal microbiome, and establish connections and co-development between microbiota and host. In this Special Issue of Genes, we would like to convey our current understanding of the human gut microbiome by showcasing some of the best research from around the world. We welcome reviews and original articles in the area of the human gut microbiome.

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. Genes 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 2600 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.
