A relatively new field on the rise, metabolomics is breaking ground identifying metabolites, giving a better understanding of what has happened and is happening within an organism. One roadblock to this research is the bottleneck of untargeted metabolites which all but prevents biological interpretation. However, thanks to a concerted effort among researchers, metabolomics is seeing gains in compound identification through improved reporting standards, better instrumentation, in silico advancements, and data interpretation guidelines.
