Metabolomics: Do you know what you (or your cells) are really eating?
Thursday, January 10, 2019
5:00pm - 6:00pm
Join us for this free Taubman Technology Talk featuring lecture and Q&A with Charles F. Burant, MD, PhD – followed by a reception and light refreshments.
Metabolomics is the large-scale study of small molecules, commonly known as metabolites, within cells, biofluids, tissues or organisms.
Examples of metabolites are glucose in the metabolism of sugars and starches, amino acids in the biosynthesis of proteins, and squalene in the biosynthesis of cholesterol.
Collectively, these small molecules and their interactions within a biological system are known as the metabolome. Metabolomics is now an integral part of the ‘omics analysis and can provide unique information in a broad array of biological systems.
