Metabolomics: A Path Towards Personalized Medicine (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Metabolomics: A Path Towards Personalized Medicine integrates environmental factors of genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics, providing a bridge to resolve gaps between fundamental science and applications in clinical medicine and population health. The concept of personalized medicine or precision medicine is of great interest in biomedical research as it helps bring about new drug discovery and biomarker identification. In addition, it helps clinicians prescribe the right medicine to the right person with maximum efficacy and minimum toxicity, allowing clinicians to further predict the susceptibility to disease onset of vulnerable populations.

The book is ideally suited for researchers and postgraduate students who are interested in clinical and non-clinical studies where metabolites are used for the identification of disease and therapeutic targets.
