Why Metabolomics: Your Guide to Metabolomics
It’s no secret—multi-omics research is quickly becoming the new standard in human disease research. Advances in scientific technology have made it possible to survey living systems at the tissue and cellular levels by measuring the thousands of molecules that comprise those systems. While there are several types of omics approaches, there are four main omics disciplines that reflect the ever-increasing complexity of living systems, from genetic code to phenotype: genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics.
In this guide, we explore the ins and outs of one of the most powerful omics tools in any scientist’s toolbox, one that can complement any existing workflow and help realize the full potential of other omics methods: metabolomics. After reading this book you’ll have a deep understanding of metabolomics and how you can start implementing it in your own research. Each chapter in this series focuses on a specific topic, delivering everything you need to know about metabolomics in manageable bite-sized chunks.
