Bioinformatics tools for metabolomics

Metabolomics is the study of metabolism and the biological and chemical processes associated with metabolites at a system level. The metabolome represents the set of metabolites and their products of a given cell, tissue, organ or organism. Mass-spectrometry coupled with liquid chromatography (LC-MS) and nuclear-magnetic resonance (NMR) stand out as dominant methods for the study of metabolomics. Most promising applications in metabolomics include the study of lipids (lipidomics), drug discovery and metabolic engineering.
