This book presents a guide for new practitioners of metabolomics, providing insights as to the current use and applications of metabolomics.

Concepts in Plant Metabolomics

Like genomics, which defines genes in a genome irrespective of functionality, metabolomics profiles all metabolites in a biological sample irrespective of the chemical and physical properties of these molecules. Metabolomics can potentially define cellular processes by providing a measure of the ultimate phenotype of an organism, characterized by the collage of small molecules whose levels of accumulation is altered in response to genetic and environmentally induced changes in gene expression.

Metabolomics

Metabolomics is the methodology and theory to study the metabolome, including targeted approaches based on selected/multiple reaction monitoring (SRM/MRM) and untargeted approaches based on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) or mass spectrometry (MS). The metabolome contains all metabolites derived from sugars, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids in a given biological system, tissue, cell, or body fluid in a metabolic network system. Metabolomic variations directly link to molecular mechanisms of a disease, reliable therapeutic targets, and effective biomarkers for prediction, diagnosis, and prognostic assessment of disease. This book presents new advances in the concept and methodology of metabolomics, as well as applications of metabolomics in the research and practice of medical and life sciences.

Plant  Abiotic Stress and Responses to Climate Change

Climate change is a serious problem influencing agricultural production worldwide and challenging researchers to investigate plant responses and to breed crops for the changed growing conditions. Abiotic stresses are the most important for crop production, affecting about 96.5% of arable land worldwide. These stress factors include high and low temperature, water deficit (drought) and flooding, salinity, heavy metals, UV radiation, light, chemical pollutants, and so on. Since some of the stresses occurred simultaneously, such as heat and water deficit, causing the interactions of physiological processes, novel multidisciplinary solutions are needed. This book provides an overview of the present state in the research of abiotic stresses and molecular, biochemical, and whole plant responses, helping to prevent the negative impact of global climate change.
