What is metabolomics?Metabolomics techniques provide an overview of the metabolome, the small molecules that do the house-keeping in our cells and body. Targeted metabolomics looks at specific subsets of small molecules. Untargeted metabolomics gives a more holistic overview of metabolites present in body fluids, culture media or cell homogenates.
Metabolomics applicationsExamples of targeted metabolomics analyses of groups of metabolites are:
- organic acids
- amino acids
- nucleotide sugars
