Microbiology and Ecological Metabolomics
A section of Metabolites (ISSN 2218-1989).
This section covers original research papers and high-quality reviews on all aspects of microbiological and ecological metabolomics research. Research that characterizes the health, composition, or physiology of complex wildlife communities in health or disease, changes in wild animal physiology, including vertebrates and invertebrates, or ecosystem functions such as those associated with environmental/climatic change are appropriate. Papers reporting technological innovation, optimization, and improvement for studying ecological metabolism, microbial or in wildlife, in vitro and in vivo are also covered.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Metabolomics applied to the evaluation of ecosystem health or function in wild-caught organisms or in situ samples (ecological impacts).
- Metabolomics applied to microbial communities (ecosystem health).
- Identification and quantification of metabolites generated by cells, tissues, and gut microbiota.
- Effects of acute and chronic ecological shifts on bodily metabolism, and consequent changes in metabolite levels and metabolic pathway activities.
- Metabolites that can be used as markers for diseases of wildlife.
- The role of novel approaches in mitigating metabolic impacts in ecosystems.
- New techniques and perspectives for ecosystem based metabolism studies.
