Metabolomics, ELIXIR Platforms and Use Cases
What is it about?
ELIXIR is a european infrastructure that coordinates bioinformatics resources and helps researchers to find, analyze, and exchange biological data.
Why is it important?
Metabolites function as both reactants and products of metabolic reactions. However, they also serve as regulatory molecules of proteins, affecting the structure and control of protein interaction and gene regulatory networks. This dual role of metabolites ensures that metabolomics is an integral aspect of systems biology research.
