Mass Spec Strategies for Plant Metabolomics

The metabolome is the set of all low molecular weight compounds (typically less than ~2000 Da) that are present within an organism, tissue, or cell. Within the mass spectrometry (MS) community, the systematic and comprehensive analysis of the metabolome – i.e., metabolomics – has become an important and increasingly popular area of research. Because the metabolome is dynamic and ever-changing, it provides a snapshot into the state of the organism at the time of measurement. Compounds may appear or disappear, or quantities may change, depending on environmental factors and internal processes. Thus, the metabolome can be thought of as a unique chemical signature providing important information about the health and inner-workings of a biological system at any given moment in time.
