How Metabolomic Profiling Can Unlock Gene Function & Provide Biological Insight | Feb 2018
This half-hour webinar shares how metabolomic profiling can provide unique insights into the molecular processes influencing disease pathogenesis in individuals and large disease cohorts.
Large-scale genomic studies have provided an understanding into the alterations of genes and genetic networks involved in the development of a wide array of human disorders. However, translation of this vast information into clinical application has been limited. The current challenge is how to leverage this data with additional data streams for clinical application.
Within this context, global metabolite profiling is a rapidly growing technology that has the potential to profoundly impact medical practice and precision medicine. Since metabolism reflects both genetic and non-genetic factors (e.g. environmental conditions, diet and lifestyle), metabolomic profiling represents a unique and powerful platform to provide insights into the molecular processes influencing disease pathogenesis in both individuals and population health studies with large disease cohorts.
Learn how the precise measurement of metabolites in an untargeted manner and this data can be used to unlock existing -omics data streams to understand the basis of wellness and disease.
