Flavoromics is derived from the fields of chemometrics and metabolomics. Essentially, it involves the non-targeted approach of rapidly gathering an immense amount of data on a diverse set of samples and then mining the data to understand complex problems.
Dr Halama, research associate in physiology and biophysics, said:"We expose cancer cells grown in the laboratory to different doses of an anti-cancer drug and then measure the changes in almost all of the small molecules that are present in the cells, using a technique called metabolomics. Using sophisticated computational methods we then identify the molecules that the cancer cells are using to escape the drug's actions, and conceive ways to block that escape route." Dr Suhre, professor of physiology and biophysics and director of the bioinformatics core at WCM-Q, is one of the world's leading metabolomics experts.
