“Metabolomics can only attend the functional genomic ball if it dresses in similar fine clothes to those worn by other Omics approaches.”(Julian Griffin)
The metabolomic researcher’s dream is a software tool that automatically confirms or contradicts a given hypothesis and, additionally, reports a substantial gain of knowledge in grammatically correct sentences together with complete statistical analysis, metabolic pathway graph mappings and literature analysis. Such a fictional integrated workbench or Swiss army knife of data interpretation currently does not exist. However, the building blocks for such a workbench are not far from reality.
