Metabolomics at the Interface between Nutrition, Microbiota, and Health

 MxP Quant 500 Kit Highlights v2

The phenotype of an organism is influenced by a complex interaction between genetics, nutrition, and the environment. The microbiota is an additional contributing element. Metabolomics is a powerful research tool for the systemic analysis of these factors. A growing number of scientific publications showcase the invaluable importance of metabolism in a large variety of research areas.
