Abstract Metabolomics, including both targeted and global metabolite profiling strategies, is fast becoming the approach of choice across a broad range of sciences including systems biology, drug discovery, molecular and cell biology, and other medical and agricultural sciences. New analytical and bioinformatics technologies and techniques are continually being created or optimized, significantly increasing the crossdisciplinary capabilities of this new biology. The metabolomes of medicinal plants are particularly a valuable natural resource for the evidence-based development of new phytotherapeutics and nutraceuticals. Comparative metabolomics platforms are evolving into novel technologies for monitoring disease development, drug metabolism, and chemical toxicology. An efficient multidisciplinary marriage of these emerging metabolomics techniques with agricultural biotechnology will greatly benefit both basic and applied medical research.
