MICROBIOLOGY

Description

Systems biology has greatly increased our understanding of many cellular functions
and cell–cell interactions. Our awareness of the enormous range of activities performed by microorganisms has been greatly enhanced by major developments in
the fields of genomics, proteomics and transcriptomics. However, understanding
these functions does not fully describe the global metabolic features of single cells
or cell populations (mono-specific or multi-species). Characterization of the
metabolome brings us closer to the phenotype of the cell and more closely reflects
the activities of microbes in response to environmental stimuli.
Microbial metabolomics is an emerging field that has developed rapidly in recent
years. This development has been paralleled and supported by important advances
in analytical instrumentation and technologies, in particular chromatographic and
mass spectrometric methods, coupled with new and more powerful computational
tools.
This book brings together contributions from global experts from diverse areas
that have facilitated the exciting advances in microbial metabolomics, with special
attention given to the development of relevant hardware and software platforms.
Thus, the principles of these technologies will be a major focus of the book.
The main application of metabolomics is likely to be in the field of clinical and
