Human metabolomics for precision medicine.

Metabolomics, or the study of all cellular metabolites, promises to be a new cornerstone in disease diagnosis and precision medicine.  Several recent reports demonstrate that metabolite profiles are excellent indicators of the health status of individuals.  In addition, metabolomics monitoring is likely to be included in the clinical trials on a routine basis.  Most of these reports are with Caucasian patients with almost no data available for the Indian population.  Furthermore, the field of metabolomics is not nearly as developed as proteomics or transcriptom
