Worldwide, the metabolomics field is changing rapidly. To help keep track of these developments we provide a non-exhaustive list of worldwide platforms, research groups, institutes and societies with a focus on metabolomics (list under development!)
|The Metabolomics Society is an independent, non-profit organization, governed by a Board of Directors composed of dedicated members of the metabolomics community but ultimately responsive to its members. The Metabolomics Society’s vision is to become the premier organisation devoted to the development of metabolism-based research. Constituted in 2004, the Metabolomics Society now has more than 1,000 members in more than 40 countries.
|The LIPID MAPS® Lipidomics Gateway|
|Provides access to lipid nomenclature, databases, tools, protocols, standards, tutorials, meetings, publications, and other resources and serving the international lipid research community.
|The Human Metabolome Database (HMDB|
|A freely available electronic database containing detailed information about small molecule metabolites found in the human body. It is intended to be used for applications in metabolomics, clinical chemistry, biomarker discovery and general education.
|The MAP/UK Partnership was established in 2019 by the MRC to advance metabolic phenotypic for the benefit of UK researchers by driving cooperation, collaborative development and education amongst UK research institutions. The MAP/UK website has a collection of short videos put together by partners at Imperial, Liverpool, Birmingham and elsewhere on relevant concepts and aims. In addition, the partners are keen for researchers to complete a survey to help them identify and understand unmet needs and challenges in metabolic phenotypic applications. Input from researchers will help drive the programme of development of analytic, bioinformatic and training capabilities so make sure your view is heard by completing the survey.
|Brydwell: Resources for Lipid Analysis|
|The PhosphatidylCholines page (part of series from research scientist and lipid chemist Dr W Byrdwell from Washington DC) has been established to disseminate free copies of mass lists of PhosphatidylCholines, or Phosphatidyl Choline (PC) molecular species, which are more formally called Glycerophosphocholines (GPCho). They are the major components of Lecithin, often obtained as a lipid extract from egg yolks or soybeans.
|Provides statistical, functional and integrative analysis of metabolomics data.
|The Fiehn laboratory at UC Davis develops metabolomics technologies in cheminformatics and analytical chemistry and applies these methods in biomedical projects and basic science. The Fiehn laboratory leads the NIH West Coast Metabolomics Center and engages in collaborative NIH research projects, specifically aiming at genomics integration, interpretation of data sets, advanced statistics and collaboration in cardiovascular health, metabolic syndrome, ageing and cancer metabolism projects.
|Scripps Center for Metabolomics|
|The Scripps Center for Metabolomics is applying and developing mass spectrometry-based quantitative global analysis of endogenous metabolites from cells, tissues, fluids or whole organisms. It developed both the METLIN Metabolome Database and the XCMS metabolomics analysis software.
|NIHCommon Fund Metabolomics Workbench|
|The Metabolomics Workbench serves as a national and international repository for metabolomics data and metadata and provides analysis tools and access to metabolite standards, protocols, tutorials, training, and more.
|Metabolomics Association of North America (MANA)|
|The mission of MANA is to promote the growth and development of the field of metabolomics (broadly defined as the systems-scale study of biochemical intermediates in biological systems), particularly on the continent of North America; to provide the opportunity for association among North American researchers in metabolomics sciences and in related fields|
