[…] association are the ones with the highest scores. We applied metabomatching to each SNP showing a significant association with an NMR feature or feature-ratio, using the 180 metabolites listed in the urine metabolome database [] with an experimental NMR spectrum as reference set. The urine metabolome database is the subset of metabolites in the Human Metabolome Database (HMDB) [] present in urine. […]
