    You're trying to learn about the human genome, microbiome and the proteome. And now we have the metabolome. What is that??? Simply put it looks at metabolities.

    The following sums things up. The bold highlights are mine.

    Looked around the website a bit. This is very exciting stuff and I see potential for it to help us. We are entering a whole new era in medicine. Very soon the way physicians are trained will have to be completely changed.

    My question is: since this has been going on SINCE 2005 why have I never heard of it??? And this project is Canadian!

    The testing and evaluation of metabolite levels has been in use by naturopaths for years. A lot of us have had organic acids tests done which does exactly that. Is 'metabolomics' the same thing? It sounds like it. It just sounds like allopathic medicine has put a name to it and is putting money into studying it. Great!
