Special Issue "Metabolomics in Obesity Related Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 January 2022) | Viewed by 2409
Obesity is a worldwide problem and can cause a number of diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular dieases, some types of cancer, and reproductive system disorders. Metabolomics is a state-of-the-art technology that allows for high-throughput profiling of small molecules, and has emerged as a powerful tool to understand complex diseases. In particular, lipid metabolites are the main components of known metablites. Large epidemiological studies with collected biological samples and ascertained disease outcomes provide ideal resources to conduct metabolomic studies. These studies identify novel molecular markers that can be used for disease prediction and reveal pathways that elucidate biological mechanisms of obesity-related diseases.
This Special Issue aims to highlight epidemiological studies utilizing metabolomics or metabolomics integrated with other -omics technologies (such as proteomics, transcriptomics, epigenetics, and gut microbiota) to enhance our understanding of obesity-related diseases. Therefore, we invite original and review articles based on population data in humans related to this topic. Methodological studies and COVID-19 related studies are also welcome.

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.
