Issue no. 14 is a “mini special issue” on “Microscale Separation Methods for Metabolomics” comprising 9 manuscripts on metabolomics and 12 manuscripts on various topics in nucleic acids, biomarkers, proteomics, miniaturization, etc. Part I has 9 manuscripts on metabolomics featuring new technological developments and the potential of CE-MS, targeted analysis of one class of metabolites and non-targeted analysis, and data interpretation that is essential to acquire useful biological information. In short, the importance of CE and, generally, of microscale separation methods for metabolomics is rapidly increasing and the papers published in this issue give an overview of this field. Part II has 2 research papers on biomarkers while Part III is on various aspects of nucleic acids including but not limited to genotyping, PCR, SSCP, PCR and detection of DNA. Part IV describes various aspects of fundamentals and methodology in microfluidics, cell lysates by 2-DE, CE-LIF of plasmid DNA, whole blood assay of trypsin activity, etc.
