Abstract

Metabolomics is emerging as an exciting post-genomic science with applications that span the scope of biotechnology and medicine. Although metabolomics is still in its infancy, it has already been used to identify the function of genes, describe the effects of toxicological, pharmaceutical, nutritional and environmental interventions, and to build integrated databases of metabolite concentrations across human and research animal populations. Metabolomics provides nutrition with an invaluable tool for determining the distributions of metabolite concentrations in humans, the relationship of these metabolite concentrations to disease, and the extent to which nutrition can modulate metabolite concentrations.
