Beyond metabolomics

Metabolomics measures all of the metabolites in a compartment. By taking multiple snapshots, it characterizes the metabolic flux in a system.

“Structured metabolomics” assesses the metabolic flux with the evolving native structures intact, enabling better predictions of the next “state of the system.” The movements of metabolites and catalysts and the changes in the native structures are key input variables in the state function.
