Metabolomics: approaches, applications, and integration

edited by Dr Ute Roessner & Dr Ruth Welti

A new series from GigaScience, now encouraging submissions!

Metabolomics is of keen interest to the broader community given its key position as a ‘real world endpoint’ in applications such as understanding plant metabolism, environmental stress and disease. For this reason, the integration of metabolomics with other omic-based approaches is of growing interest, as a means to better understand the combined effects of upstream omics and the functional phenotypes of disease or plant cellular biology. This cutting-edge series aims to shed light on new advances, applications, and challenges, and to improve data sharing and reproducibility in research utilizing metabolomics.
