Although it has been several years since metabolic networks became a commonly used analysis technique in bioinformatics, the question of how best to construct them from experimental data is still not satisfactorily resolved. Here we present a method for the construction of directed metabolic networks from microarray datasets using an enhanced version of the KEGG LIGAND database.
We developed an automated sample preparation protocol based on a robotic platform PAL RTC (CTC Analytics AG, Zwingen Switzerland), which represent a modified Bligh and Dyer method producing samples for both hydrophilic metabolomics using GC-MS and lipidomics using SFC-MS simultaneously.READ MORE
