Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A number of physiological and pathological conditions are characterized by dynamic remodeling of the proteome and with a deep modification in the concentration of metabolites in the organism.

Molecular phenotyping, in particular proteomics and metabolomics, offers great promise in this field. Indeed, on one hand, they lead to the discovery of new, biologically and clinically relevant biomarkers, for personalizing preventive and therapeutic interventions. On the other hand, they contribute new knowledge in terms of molecular mechanisms. Furthermore, the combined integrative genomics approaches with proteo-metabolomic investigations are developing rapidly and are particularly relevant in the understanding of several pathologies.

For this Special Issue, we invite authors to contribute original research articles, method papers, as well as review articles that will address recent developments in the area of proteomics and metabolomics.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

Reference standards and intervals for clinical proteomics;
Integrative genomics on the verge of proteomics and metabolomics;
Novel mass spectrometry methods for clinical practice;
Bioinformatics for the analysis of proteomics and metabolomics data;
Molecular protein networks;
Targeted, untargeted metabolomics;
II order molecular cybernetics mechanisms.Prof. Dr. Andrea Urbani

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. 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.
