Metabolomic systems biology of trypanosomes

  • MICHAEL P. BARRETT (a1), BARBARA M. BAKKER (a2) and RAINER BREITLING (a3)
Abstract
SUMMARY

Metabolomics analysis, which aims at the systematic identification and quantification of all metabolites in biological systems, is emerging as a powerful new tool to identify biomarkers of disease, report on cellular responses to environmental perturbation, and to identify the targets of drugs. Here we discuss recent developments in metabolomic analysis, from the perspective of trypanosome research, highlighting remaining challenges and the most promising areas for future research.
