Gut, skin and respiratory environments consist of interaction networks of multiple organisms. Individual organisms and biofilms contribute to these networks through various proteomic activities and metabolic exchanges.
The recent trends have highlighted that one omic platform is no longer sufficient in systems biology. While genomic/transcriptomic studies highlight the expressions of specific genes, these expressions do not completely address the interaction omics. Similarly, numerous metabolism-based analytical chemistry studies have indicated that similar types of metabolites are involved in multiple biochemical reactions, decreasing the utilization of individual metabolites as effective biomarkers. Instead, it has been increasingly observed that a biomarker panel, a mix of certain metabolites and proteins, combined with specific genomic aspects (e.g., certain microbial species or individual gene/gene sets), could be a more reliable biomarker.
Bioinformatic toolboxes analyse integrated proteome/metabolome and genome/metabolome datasets and biochemical interactions. Newer AI-ML-based platforms are employed to analyse these large datasets for biomarker discovery, and host–parasite–microbiome interactions, among others. These applications are applied to address the mechanisms of multi-organ axes, antimicrobial resistance (AMR), and biological passports.
This Special Issue “Multi-Omics Approaches for Health and Disease” aims to explore the applications of integrated multiomics in various diseases, disorders, infections and nutritional aspects to develop the field of precision medicine in clinical and veterinary health. We welcome original scientific research articles, comprehensive reviews, communications, case reports, letters, commentaries and editorials that contribute to this field.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
