Edibilomics

Nutritional metabolomics is rapidly growing to use small molecule chemical profiling to support integration of diet and nutrition in complex bio systems research. These developments are critical to facilitate transition of nutritional sciences from population based to individual-based criteria for nutritional research, assessment and management. Utilizing metabolomics, scientists can quantitatively dissect non-hereditary variables that are included in post genomic and posttranscriptional change. Food-omics has been recently defined as a new discipline that studies food and nutrition domains through the application of advanced omics technologies in which MS techniques are considered indispensable. Food-omics applications  include the genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomics, study of foods for compound profiling, authenticity, biomarker-detection related to food quality or safety; the development of new transgenic foods.
