We would like to invite you to submit a research article or a review for the Metabolites Special Issue “Metabolism in Molecular Plant–Insect and Plant–Microbe Interactions.”
When considering the billions of interorganismal interactions occurring on earth, those among plants, insects, and microbes are some of the most diverse and economically impactful. Central to these interactions are metabolites that serve as bioactive modulators of plant, insect, and microbe physiology. With the recent advent of metabolomics technologies, the discovery of active molecules that regulate these interactions has progressed rapidly. This Special Issue aims to highlight the general metabolism underpinning these interactions, the known molecules that regulate them, and novel discoveries regarding both known and unknown biochemicals that govern their interplay. Studies that utilize genetics and biology methods to characterize the functional role of significant metabolites are also encouraged.
We solicit research articles presenting results from both plant–insect and plant–microbe interactions and welcome review articles that provide a sound understanding of the interactive physiology of these organisms.

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. Metabolites 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 2700 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.
