We have started to recognize more and more that proper metabolism is necessary not only for the homeostasis of different tissues, but that it can also induce gene expression and cell signaling. Many studies have now shown that metabolism is closely connected with many other intra and intercellular networks that regulate cellular fate and tissue function. Various problems in organ development involve a pathologically distorted metabolism. Proper organ development requires exquisite metabolic control, and it has been shown that a perturbed metabolism can result in developmental diseases. A lot of undetermined processes remain unknown in our understanding of the role of metabolic processes in developing organs and tissues. Given the amount and interconnection of metabolic networks, new systematic studies are needed.
Therefore, in this Special Issue “Metabolism in Organ Development”, we would like to bring together scientists exploring how metabolism can impact developmental processes in a wide range of model systems affect intra and inter-cellular signaling on the tissue and organ levels.

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.
