 Targeted Metabolomics
 
Targeted MetabolomicsMetabolome can be described as the terminal output of the genome that comprises the overall complement of metabolites (molecules with low molecular weight) in an organism or cell. The technique of measuring molecules is divided into two groups: targeted metabolomics and untargeted metabolomics.
