Metabolomics studies the types and amounts of endogenous metabolites in organisms and their patterns of change in response to internal and external factors.
Plant traits reflect the response and adaptation of plants to their growth environment, linking the environment, individual plant and ecosystem structure, processes and functions. The elucidation of metabolites and metabolic pathways is important for the development of high-precision improved lines in crop breeding.
Complex traits in animals are the result of long-term adaptive evolution and are the main basis for the existence of animal diversity. Metabolomics can be used to resolve complex animal traits and facilitate the assessment of breeding value for economic traits in livestock and poultry, diagnosis and prevention of diseases in agricultural animals, safety evaluation of livestock and poultry products, and use of animal medical models.
Creative Proteomics has established a high-throughput metabolomic analysis platform to provide trait biomarker analysis services to accelerate the discovery of metabolites and novel pathways of various biochemical types and to help improve the understanding of known existing pathways.
