NMR-Based Metabolomics

Part of the book series: Methods in Molecular Biology ((MIMB,volume 2037))


High-throughput analysis of NMR data in metabolomics involves both rapid data acquisition and analysis. We describe here a data collection and analysis protocol, which enables fast multidimensional NMR data acquisition and automated analysis of NMR spectra to rapidly identify the metabolites and assign them to active metabolic pathways in the system.
