Special Issue "Omics Approaches to Metabolic Disorders"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
Modern society is affected by a dramatic increase in chronic diseases and conditions (including, among others, obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease), in which metabolic dysregulation plays a key role in pathogenesis and disease progression. Metabolism is defined as the sum of the biochemical processes that either produce or consume energy in living organisms, and it originates from the combinatorial effects of genetic, epigenetic, transcriptional, translational, metabolic, microbial and environmental factors.
Over the last few years, the application of omics approaches (e.g., genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and metagenomics) has contributed to a greater understanding of the aetiology of many metabolic disorders. Particularly, these new high-throughput technologies have greatly advanced the ability to identify biomarkers, disease-related genes and targets for potential therapeutic strategies. Therefore, omics tools have great potential to open new avenues towards the prevention, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of metabolic disorders.
In this Special Issue titled "Omics Approaches to Metabolic Disorders", we welcome submissions of original research and review articles presenting new insights into the molecular aspects of metabolic disorders. Studies devoted to biomarker discovery and dietary/treatment responses using omics analysis are highly encouraged.

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.
