R-E-L-A-X. Successful metabolomics studies are not that hard

Jan 29, 2016, 3:21 AM
I like football (the American version that is), and I also like metabolomics. So, not surprisingly, as I was contemplating writing about how doing a successful metabolomics study is not really that difficult, these two topics collided.

Can Global Metabolonic Profiling be used as a Clinical Tool for Inborn Error of Metabolism Screening?

Sep 11, 2015, 3:56 AM
Global metabolomic profiling is a powerful tool for the discovery of diagnostic biomarkers. Recently, Metabolon has been involved with translational research to extend the application of metabolomics from population studies and biomarker discovery to individual patient testing (N-of-one studies) for the detection of inborn errors of metabolism (IEM).

Biology’s “building inspector”

Jul 31, 2015, 4:01 AM
Continuing on the topic of my last post, I wanted to find an analogy that could paint a familiar, vivid picture of how metabolism relates to living systems and genetics and, therefore, why it’s an important research tool. The example a colleague and I came up with was that of a living organism being analogous to a house and the process by which they are constructed.
