The primary aim of "omic" technologies is the nontargeted identification of all gene products (transcripts, proteins, and metabolites) present in a specific biological sample. By their nature, these technologies reveal unexpected properties of biological systems. A second and more challenging aspect of omic technologies is the refined analysis of quantitative dynamics in biological systems. For metabolomics, gas and liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry are well suited for coping… Expand
Metabolomics: an integral technique in systems biology.
TLDR
The systematic relation between high-throughput metabolomic data and their interpretation with respect to the underlying biochemical regulatory network is discussed and their significance in the postgenomic era is discussed. Expand
Advantages and Pitfalls of Mass Spectrometry Based Metabolome Profiling in Systems Biology
TLDR
This review discusses the advantages of metabolome profiling and main obstacles limiting progress in systems biology, and suggests integrated data derived from multi-omics approaches will provide a deeper understanding of entire biological systems. Expand
METABOLOMICS IN MEDICINE
TLDR
Although use of metabolomics in medicine is in its infancy, this approach is considered to have the potential to revolutionize medical practice in prevention, predicting and personalizing health care. Expand
Metabolomics: from pattern recognition to biological interpretation.
TLDR
This work has shown that metabolite data can be complemented by protein, transcript and external (environmental) data, thereby leading to the identification of multiple physiological biomarkers embedded in correlative molecular networks that are not approachable with targeted studies. Expand
Metabolomics: an emerging post-genomic tool for nutrition
TLDR
The post-genomic era has been driven by the development of technologies that allow the function of cells and whole organisms to be explored at the molecular level, and metabolism offers enormous potential as a means of investigating the complex relationship between nutrition and metabolism. Expand
Metabolomics: Novel Tool for Studying Complex Biological Systems
TLDR
Plant metabolomics is a powerful tool in systems biology and functional genomics studies, it has already been applied for agricultural purposes, in substantial equivalence studies of GMO and in quality evaluation of food, beverages and phytomedicines. Expand
Integration of metabolomics and proteomics in molecular plant physiology--coping with the complexity by data-dimensionality reduction.
TLDR
It can be shown that biochemical regulation is reflected by metabolite network dynamics measured in a metabolomics approach, providing evidence for an increase of information in such holistic approaches. Expand
Metabolome analysis using GC-MS
TLDR
The methods described in this chapter provide qualitative and quantitative information about the Lotus metabolome, which together with transcriptome and proteome analyses, enable new insights into the links between genotype and phenotype at the whole-system level. Expand
Metabolomics--a new exciting field within the "omics" sciences.
TLDR
Successful implementation of metabolomics requires analytical instrumentation that offers high throughput, resolution, reproducibility, and sensitivity, and only an assembly of different analytical platforms will currently provide maximum coverage of the metabolome. Expand
The role of mass spectrometry in plant systems biology.
TLDR
The initial steps to characterize the molecular plant phenotype as a corollary of environment and genotype are summarized, and attempts to combine spatial, tissue-specific resolution with systematic profiling are described. Expand

TLDR
In this review, the differences among metabolite target analysis, metabolite profiling, and metabolic fingerprinting are clarified, and terms are defined. Expand
A functional genomics strategy that uses metabolome data to reveal the phenotype of silent mutations
TLDR
It is demonstrated how the intracellular concentrations of metabolites can reveal phenotypes for proteins active in metabolic regulation, and this approach to functional analysis, using comparative metabolomics, is called FANCY—an abbreviation for functional analysis by co-responses in yeast.

TLDR
The use of metabolic profiling in conjunction with datamining tools as a technique for the comprehensive characterization of a plant genotype is demonstrated. Expand
Observing and Interpreting Correlations in Metabolic Networks
TLDR
This work introduces a framework which shows that the emergent correlations can be interpreted as a 'fingerprint' of the underlying biophysical system and leads to a systematic relationship between observed correlation networks and the underlying biochemical pathways. Expand

TLDR
A comparative display of the expression patterns indicated that enzymes involved in central metabolic pathways are present in all tissues, whereas metabolic specialization is reflected in the occurrence of a tissue-specific enzyme complement. Expand

TLDR
The use of metabolite profiling is described as a new tool for a comparative display of gene function and has the potential not only to provide deeper insight into complex regulatory processes but also to determine phenotype directly. Expand

Enrichment analysis of phosphorylated proteins as a tool for probing the phosphoproteome
TLDR
A method for enriching phosphoserine/threonine-containing proteins from crude cell extracts and for subsequently identifying the phosphoproteins and sites of phosphorylation is described, which involves chemical replacement of the phosphate moieties by affinity tags and should be of widespread utility for defining signaling pathways and control mechanisms that involve phosphorylated or dephosphorylation of serine/Threonine residues.
