Skip to 0 minutes and 9 secondsMetabolomics: Understanding Metabolism in the 21st Century. In this first week, we have introduced you to the field of metabolomics, described how this 21st century technique is changing how we study metabolism, and discussed the advantages of studying the metabolome. Next week, we will introduce you to the multi-disciplinary approaches applied in metabolomics. How has a vast amount of data that is generated in omics studies altered to scientific approaches that we apply to enable us to find new, exciting, and life-changing biological discoveries? Next week we will be joined by some of our collaborators who will tell you how metabolomics is impacting on their research areas from both the clinical and environmental sciences.
