Applied Metabolome Analysis

The “Applied Metabolome Analysis” research group of Dr. Joachim Kopka provides gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) based metabolite profiling technologies to scientists of the MPIMP and to cooperating external partner groups.  In 1998 Dr. Joachim Kopka co-initiated the application of the multi-parallel GC-MS based profiling technology in the metabolomic field at the MPI-MP and at the Metanomics GmbH & CoKG.

Time series data from metabolite profiling experiments or kinetic flux analyses can be easily visualized and explored using independent component analysis. Size and colour represent the progression of time in this example. Zoom Image

Since 2001 the “Applied Metabolome Analysis” research group of Dr. Kopka has been part of Department 1, Prof. L. Willmitzer, at the MPIMP, in combination with a role as a science infrastructure group.  As a consequence of this dual role the research group applies and develops metabolome analysis tools and explores the potential of new bio-analytical tools for applied metabolome analysis. These objectives are pursued with a clear focus on GC-MS based technologies.
