Metabolomic analysis aims at the identification and quantitation of all metabolites in a given biological sample. Current data acquisition and network analysis strategies are classified on the basis of pathway elucidation and characteristics of theoretical networks. The development of metabolomic methods and tools is progressing rapidly, but an understanding of the resulting data is limited owing to a fundamental lack of biochemical and physiological knowledge about network organization in plants.
