Metabolomics in systems biology: Mass spectrometry and bioinformatics analysis of metabolism in eukaryotic organisms

Date Friday, November 20, 2009, 09:00 - 16:00
Location Auditorium 3.14, Copenhagen University, Faculty of Life Sciences, Thorvaldsensvej 40, Frederiksberg
Organizers Kim Larsen, Glostrup Hospital and Jan H. Christensen, Copenhagen University

Meeting abstract

Metabolomics is the systematic study of the unique chemical fingerprints that specific cellular processes leave behind - specifically, the study of their small-molecule metabolite profiles. The metabolome represents the collection of all metabolites in a biological organism, which are the end products of its gene expression. One of the challenges in systems biology and functional genomics is to integrate proteomic, transcriptomic, and metabolomic information to give a more complete picture of living organisms.
