The University of Melbourne

The University of Melbourne metabolomics services are offered within its School of Biosciences and the Bio21 Institute.

A broad range of metabolomics technologies, services and expertise are offered in the areas of:

  • Analysis of a broad range of naturally occurring metabolites
  • Analysis of specific metabolites or sets of metabolites relating to targeted metabolic pathways
  • Bio-prospecting of metabolites in plant, animal and microbial systems
  • Data storage, library construction, bioinformatics analyses, quantification and statistical validation of metabolic variations and biomarker responses
  • Bioinformatics approaches to integrated systems, molecular profile analyses linking metabolomics data with corresponding genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics data.
  • Comparisons of genotype/SNP patterns with metabolite profiles of drugs or other test compounds administered to relevant biological test systems.
