What we do:

Metabolite Profiling aspires to provide a comprehensive picture of low molecular weight metabolites present in biological systems. It aims at extracting, detecting, identifying, and quantifying a broad spectrum of compounds to  provide a deeper insight into complex biological systems. The combination of  univariate and multivariate-based statistical analyses of chromatographic data allows a comprehensive and comparative assessment of metabolite profiles from various biological samples. The present expertise of our group is based on metabolite profiling of plants (rice, maize, barley, soybean). However, the technique is assignable on other biological systems.
