Metabolomics Core Facility

Conducting mass spectrometry-based metabolomics studies on a variety of biofluids and tissue extracts from plant and animal sources

Our primary goal is to identify and quantitate the small (<1kDa) molecules present in these samples, as identifying perturbations in the amounts of particular metabolites can offer insights into the underlying biological processes involved in their production.

Please note: publications that include analysis performed at the Metabolomics Core Facility should acknowledge grant "NSF MRI 1126373" for support.
