Figure 2: Schematic representation of a metabolomics experimental workflow. Based on the study design, biological samples are collected and processed and subsequently analyzed using various analytical platforms. The different analytical platforms such as Gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy (GC-MS), Liquid chromatography-mass spectroscopy (LC-MS), Capillary Electrophoresismass spectroscopy (CE-MS) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) are used for data acquisition. The raw data is pre-processed, reduced and subjected to statistical analysis using ANOVA, SVM, and/or student’s t-test. The results help to establish a correlation with the phenotype and can also be utilized to confirm or generate hypothesis.
