Liquid biopsies for metabolomics
The metabolome is the set of small molecular mass compounds found in biological media, and metabolomics, which refers to as the analysis of metabolome in a given biological condition, deals with the large scale detection and quantification of metabolites in biological media. It is a data driven and multidisciplinary approach combining analytical chemistry for data acquisition, and biostatistics, informatics and biochemistry for mining and interpretation of these data. Metabolomics is now widely used for biomedical applications in the field of biomarker discovery. The aim of the talk will be to present the state of the art of this approach regarding the availability of reference protocols for the analysis of liquid biopsies, and also of studies documenting the stability of metabolites present in these samples.
