Exploring Human Metabolism to Map Genetic Influences

Oct 11, 2016, 3:57 PM
The metabolome describes all the small molecule metabolites in a single organism or biological sample and provides a snapshot of metabolic status at that particular moment. Combining the power of metabolomics with the genetic blueprint created by genome-wide association studies (GWAS) has allowed Metabolon and its collaborators to create an atlas of genetic influences on human blood metabolites.

Using Metabolomics to Reduce Drug Attrition in Pharma R and D

Oct 5, 2015, 3:49 AM
It’s well-known that the time and cost to bring a new pharmaceutical to market are considerable. The average length of time from target ID to a new therapeutic is about 13 years and costs roughly $1.5 billion, embedded within an overall failure rate of 95%. But why?
