Metabolomic Analysis Suite

Metabolites are important components of all living organisms and perturbations in metabolic patterns can have severe physiological consequences.

About the suite

Metabolic analyses comprise several steps from tissue extraction through to detection, analysis and interpretation of results, using either targeted or non-targeted approaches.

The Metabolomics Analysis Suite is funded by Science Foundation Ireland and the Irish Higher Education Authority Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions 5 (HEA-PRTLI 5). The platform is located within the UCD Earth Institute and support researchers in the UCD Centre for Plant Science with mass spectrometry-based analysis of metabolites, including lipids.
