Metabolomics is a relatively newcomer of the Omics family for large-scale characterization of small molecules of biological systems. A key step in metabolomics is to determine metabolic differences among different samples. We want to detect and quantify as many metabolites as possible, ideally covering the entire chemical space of the metabolome. High-coverage metabolome analysis will benefit many research areas, including disease biomarker discovery, population-based health analytics and clinical applications. This presentation will focus on the discussion of current challenges and potential solutions for translating global metabolomics into clinical applications.
