||The unique informatics challenge to sharing metabolomics information is being addressed by multiple research groups. This workshop will bring together international groups of biologists, chemists, engineers and bioinformatics experts to discuss the development of informatics standards and shared resources in this emerging field. Metabolomics uses high throughput methods to study metabolism, metabolites and small molecules within cells and tissues. These collective small molecule constituents, or metabolome, along with the proteome and genome, comprise the building blocks of living systems. The metabolome is a dynamic system of chemical reactions and interactions with the building blocks of life.
