In Metabolomics we measure the levels of thousands of molecules simultaneously – which allows a much better understanding of metabolism.

We integrate system-theoretical ideas with genome-scale molecular analysis using genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics to understand and predict the genotype- environment-phenotype-relationship (GxExP). We investigate plant, microbial, animal and human systems.

The quality of state-of-the-art metabolomics technology depends on the quality of the preparation workflows, the quality of metabolite libraries and workflows for structural elucidation of novel structures. An interdisciplinary approach is necessary to tackle this problem.

Internationally recognized labs at the University of Vienna distributed over three faculties for Chemistry, Geosciences and Life Sciences consolidate their specific and complementary metabolomics platforms and application fields to build a Vienna Metabolomics Center.
