2nd Danish Symposium on Metabolomics in Systems Biology 

Date Monday, August 16, 2010, 09:00 - 16:45
Location Auditorium 3.14, University of Copenhagen, Faculty of Life Sciences, Thorvaldsensvej 40, Frederiksberg
Organizers Jan H. Christensen, University of Copenhagen and Kim Larsen, Glostrup Hospital

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.
