[…] data from skin and liver tissues for each frog from Experiment B (n=61). These data have been scaled by dividing by the summed ion signal (total ion chromatogram). Dataset 8 has been submitted to the MetaboLights data repository (Data Citation 3). An alternative presentation of this data is also contained as a single comma-separated file (.csv format) (Dataset 9; Data Citation 1), with full descri […]


When Transcriptomics and Metabolomics Work Hand in Hand: A Case Study Characterizing Plant CDF Transcription Factors

PMCID: 5876533

[…] give valuable advice on good laboratory practices in this regard [,,,]. Since the formation of the Metabolomics Standards Initiative (MSI) in 2005, a number of metabolomics data repositories, such as MetaboLights, Metabolomics Workbench, Metabolomics Repository Bordeaux (MeRy-B), or the Metabolic Phenotype Database (MetaPhen) have been developed [,,,,]. Those databases represent a rich resource of […]

[…] nsion in situ in October and so should search against this externally as the latest version. With comprehensive coverage in mind, users would thus need to check WikiPathways (unique to PC) as well as MetaboLights (unique to UC)., However, they would also need to check the first Recon set as loaded (also unique to UC) in October 2014. However, this has not been updated to the latest published Reco […]
