Unbiased metabolomic surveys are used for physiological, clinical and genomic studies to infer genotype-phenotype relationships. Long term reusability of metabolomic data needs both correct metabolite annotations and consistent biological classifications. We have developed a system that combines mass spectrometric and biological metadata to achieve this goal. First, an XMLbased LIMS system enables entering biological metadata for steering laboratory workflows by generating ‘classes’ that… CONTINUE READING
