metabolomics

(mə-tăb′ə-lŏm′ĭks)
n. (used with a sing. verb)
The study of the small molecules, such as sugars and amino acids, that are substrates, products, or intermediates of metabolic reactions in an organism.

metabolomics

The systematic study of the unique chemical fingerprints, in the form of small-molecule metabolite profiles, that are left by specific cellular reactions.

metabolomics

(mĕ-tăb″ă-lŏm′ĭks) [ metabolome, the collective metabolites in an organism + ″]
1. The study of all the metabolic processes of cells and their impact on health and disease.
2. The study of the metabolic profile of an organism, including the identification, categorization, and quantification of its metabolites.

metabolomics
