How can big data approaches to metabolomics help scientists generate knowledge? Researchers at the University of California San Diego have developed a way for scientists all over the world to create a larger context and uncover new connections between their results. Mass spectrometry data can be used to understand the interactions of small molecules that affect overall host health and the impact of environmental exposure.
A world-renowned institute for research on aging looks at the biomarkers of aging to find ways to intervene before age-related illnesses affect quality of life.
“If you don’t look at the small molecules, it’s like watching a movie with the sound muted.”
