Plant Metabolomics

Plant Metabolomics

Metabolomics has a huge impact on plant physiology research. Although „classical“ plant biochemistry has been studied for many decades, the holistic approach of metabolic profiling found its way in many research groups.

Non-targeted approaches can provide important information on unexpected metabolic changes induced in plants by biotic or abiotic factors as well as in unraveling gene functions in functional genomics studies.

These non-targeted as well as targeted approaches are readily enabled by Bruker`s Metabolomics solutions. In particular the combination of complementary technologies such as NMR, LC-MS and GC-MS perfectly address the need for a comprehensive analysis of small molecules.

An integral part of the Metabolomics workflow is Bruker´s tailored software to quickly pinpoint relevant information and generate knowledge.
