Software: We have developed free and open source data analyses solutions in Matlab via GitHub and PyChem in Python, which you can read about in Bioinformatics.  More chemometrics and tutorials are available via our resources tab.

Analytical Solutions: Our SOPs for MS-based metabolomics and SERS are available here.

Metabolomics: This is an exciting dynamic research area that is gaining momentum and we are pleased to announce:

Funding: Many thanks to BBSRCEPSRCHOSDBEuropean Commission FP6 and FP7, and Royal Society of Chemistry for financial support.
