Decoding the (Functional) Microbiome: Metabolomics Illuminates the Apothecaries within Us
Robert P Mohney, Ph.D., Senior Director, Metabolon

Studies highlighting key contributions of our microbiota to health and disease continue to mount; however, how this association can be leveraged to promote human health has only recently begun to be assessed. One fundamental problem is our lack of mechanistic understanding of how microbiota cooperate with its host (and each other) to orchestrate changes in health status. 

One source of mechanistic data derives from known modes of bacterial function and communication (e.g., metabolites), which may have pharmacological-like effects on the host. Mature technologies offer effective profiling of common biological sample types, making the systematic application of metabolomics to microbiome research remarkably feasible and information rich. We will discuss recent examples of how metabolomics has informed analyses of the functional consequences of changing microbiome in health and disease.
