Metabolomics & Transcriptome Sequencing

Metabolomics is a term that describes the measurement and analysis of metabolites, such as sugars and fats, in the cells of organisms at specific times and under specific conditions. Metabolomics  is of interest to physicians because it may lead to improvements in the diagnosis and treatments of human diseases. Transcriptome sequencing covers a wide variety of simple mRNA profiling to discovery and analysis of the entire Transcriptome. These, collectively called RNA-Sequence, are extremely popular for next generation sequencing platforms. Since it is a sequencing based techniques, it is well suited for RNA editing and allele specific expression.
