The Handbook of Metabonomics and Metabolomics

Molecular biology operates at three levels â genes, proteins and metabolites. This book is unique in that it provides a comprehensive description of an approach (metabonomics) to characterise the endogenous metabolites in a living system, complementing gene and protein studies (genomics and proteomics). These "omics" methods form the basis for understanding biology at a systems level. The Handbook of Metabonomics and Metabolomics aims to be the definitive work on the rapidly expanding subjects of metabolic profiling, metabolite and biomarker identification, encompassing the fields of metabonomics and metabolomics. It covers the principles of the subject, the analytical and statistical techniques used and the wide variety of applications.
For postgraduate qualified and professional research scientists working in the field of biochemistry/ academia/drug discovery and development in pharmaceutical companies, or working in related industries such as agriculture and plant biochemistry, forensic science, environmental monitoring, etc.
