On the 2nd of August, the regular FOODplus seminar drew a strong crowd. Listen to the podcast here, about Ute Roessner on Metabolomics Australia.
We were very fortunate to have Ute Roessner, the manager of the metabolomics facility at the University of Melbourne and an expert in metabolite profiling visiting FOODplus. Dr Roessner’s presentation focused on the range of technologies that are now available for metabolite profiling and the types of data that these technologies can generate. It was an opportunity to learn more about the basic principles of different metabolomics platforms, including GC-MS, LC-MS and new imaging systems, and the capabilities they offer for learning more about the properties of plant and animal tissues. It certainly provided an opportunity for members of FOODplus to start to think about how these technologies can add value to existing research programs.
