Description

Metabolomics, the unbiased identification and quantification of all metabolites in a biological sample, focuses on different GC/MS techniques and their applications to real world samples. This includes the analysis of blood samples, plant metabolite analysis and mass spectral and retention time index libraries of known and unknown metabolites, head space trapping of volatile compounds, and the integration of GC/MS metabolite profiling with protein and transcript profiling for systems biology approaches.show more

Back cover copy

Metabolomics: Methods and Protocols examines the state-of-the-art in metabolomic analysis. Leading researchers in the field present protocols for the application of complementary analytical methods, such as gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Metabolomics: Methods and Protocols contains forward-looking protocols, which provide the essential groundwork for future efforts in elucidating the structure of the unknowns detected in metabolomic studies. Part I of this volume focuses on GC-MS techniques; specifically, attention is given to metabolite profiling in blood plasma, construction and application of mass spectral and retention time index libraries, and metabolomic profiling of natural volatiles. In Part II, emphasis shifts to data integration and data mining techniques, and specific protocols discuss improving pattern recognition and biomarker selection for systems level approaches, and visualization and analysis of molecular and metabolomic data. Parts III, IV, and V examine the coupling of capillary electrophoresis and mass spectrometry, classical reversed phase liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, and electrochemical detection of metabolites using HPLC separations coupled with coulometric electrode array detectors. In Part VI, protocols for the determination of metabolic flux rates are presented and a theoretical framework for metabolic pathway network analysis is provided. The volume concludes with an examination of cutting-edge NMR protocols.show more
