Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nutrients are essential regulators of important metabolic and physiological processes in humans. Suboptimal intakes or excesses may cause developmental and chronic diseases, particularly in those who are genetically susceptible. It is important to re-assess nutrient requirements in the context of their ‘systems’ effects on multiple metabolic pathways, including interactions with other nutrients and genetic backgrounds.

This Special Issue will focus on research aimed at determining the effects of genetic variations on dietary responses (nutrigenetics) and the role of nutrients and bioactive foods in gene expression (nutrigenomics). Studies that aim to characterise the links between nutrition, genetics, biochemistry and ‘omic’ technologies, and which provide more specific guidance for genetic subgroups whose nutrient requirements may differ substantially from the norm, will be considered for publication and will help to understand the relevance of nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics to the practice of preventive approaches for optimising health, delaying disease onset, and diminishing disease severity.

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 papers will be 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.
