TRACK 1: Metabolomics
Metabolomics is the study of the metabolome/metabolites, the unique biochemical fingerprint of all cellular processes. It is an Omics technology that allows simultaneous, global, and comprehensive characterization of small molecules in a biological system. It is the large-scale study of small molecules within a mass range of 50 – 1500 Daltons (Da), commonly known as metabolites, within cells, bio fluids, tissues or organisms. These metabolites within biological samples under given genetic, nutritional or environmental conditions are known as metabolome.

Handling, processing and analysis of this data is a clear challenge and requires specialized mathematical, statistical and bioinformatics tools.
TRACK 2: System metabolomics
Systems biology is the study of biological systems at a cellular, molecular and organism level, as an integrated and interacting network of genes, proteins and biochemical reactions which give rise to life. It can be used to systematically at all levels, from molecules to entire systems and its integration into quantitative models to gain knowledge in order to make accurate simulation of biological processes possible. The technologies such as genomics, bioinformatics, proteomics, mathematical and computational models are used for predicting dynamical behaviour and quantitative measurements of the behaviour.
- Systems metabolomics combines a wide array of techniques to obtain detailed pictures of the dynamic state of metabolism. Routine clinical application requires appropriate proxy readouts designed upon identification of design principles.
