Metabolomics Conference 2018

About Conference

We are delighted to announce that the 14th International Conference and Exhibition on Metabolomics and Systems Biology will be held at Rome, Italy from October 15-17, 2018. We gladly welcome attendees all around the world for hearing of the foremost recent innovations and inventions in metabolomics.

Our aspiration is to gather peer researchers, young scientists, academicians & industrialists to meet, discuss and share the knowledge that’s still more to be revealed. Gain and grab the knowledge. Conferences and symposia provide invaluable opportunities to extend and strengthen the community, and are also the collective body of knowledge.  We cordially encourage you to attend and contribute to one of the major events of 2018 on the field of Metabolomics and Systems Biology. We are confident that you will appreciate the city of Love. (Rome is the city of echoes, the city of illusions, and the city of yearning).

Metabolomics is the large scale study of the tiny molecules called metabolites. Metabolomics is a powerful diagnostic tool that provides a snapshot of an organism's metabolic state through systemic analysis of its metabolites. It refers to the systematic identification & quantification of small molecules of a biological system at a point in time. Metabolomics rests on combination of analytical techniques .i.e. mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy for identifying the compounds and their quantities, coupled with mathematical or statistical modelling to identify significant peaks and troughs. Metabolomics provides the functional aspect of the complex biochemical processes that underlie individual’s health. The metabolic profile of an individual is composed of all the metabolites of chemical reactions and enzymatic transformations performed by the body ?to maintain life.  It is also being used to study the small molecule composition of foods and other biological systems. There are high expectations for the impressive range of applications in diagnostics and drug treatment & discovery and also in nutritional research, owing to its ability to analyse cellular events that are not detectable at the level of genomics or proteomics. 

Metabolites, which are small & highly abundant, are also extremely diverse chemically, and they also vary substantially in their molecular weight and solubility, making it difficult for a single analytical method to accurately measure all of the metabolites present in a sample. Sensitive and precise instrumentation is necessary for detecting all of the low-level metabolites in a sample, while sophisticated informatics helps to rapidly and accurately identify and quantify these metabolites.

Metabolism is central to phenotype, thus the study of an organism’s metabolic signatures can provide insight into their underlying biology. Owing to innovative developments in the field of informatics and analytical technologies, and the integration of the right biological approaches, it is possible to expand metabolomic analyses for understanding the systems-level effects of metabolites. There are numerous approaches generating metabolomics data. Some of the popular approaches include liquid or gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LC/MS, GC/MS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, & capillary electrophoresis (CE) chromatography mass spectrometry methods. Researchers across areas of life sciences are using metabolomics to answer key research questions. Metabolomics has proven to be incredibly valuable research tool, metabolomics studies also have unique challenges to consider.
Metabolomics is usually used as a tool in Bio-marker discovery for informed decision making. It is because of its advantage in terms of specificity and also sensitivity. The Metabolomics Market is driven by technique, application and by indication. The global metabolomics market is fueled by applications like biomarker discovery, drug discovery, toxicology testing, nutrigenomics, functional genomics, personalized medicine and others. With advancement in personalized medicine, diseases can be characterized at molecular level. Thus helping to design and develop the drug treatment according to each individual. Metabolomics helps in characterization of disease phenotypes and identifies personal metabolic features which help in predicting the response to various therapies. Rise in personalized medicine is definitely going to boost up the metabolomics market further.

The dynamic three-day Meeting provides attendees with opportunities to share their latest unpublished findings and learn the newest emerging techniques and applications.
