Metabolomics is the key to understanding biology, health, wellness and disease. All biological systems, including humans, are continually fueling a collection of chemical reactions. At its core, metabolomics is the large-scale study of small molecules, called metabolites, that comprise the metabolome. The science provides an assessment of health, whether influenced by genes, the environment, epigenetics or the microbiome. As innovation in other life sciences areas has slowed, metabolomics is proving to be the next frontier in supporting companies in their understanding of data revealing state of health and the influences of genes, microbiome, diet, lifestyle and drug treatment.
