- ‘As another approach to integrate transcriptome and metabolome, data are mapped on known metabolic pathways.’
- ‘Amino acid analysis and metabolome studies of the mutants are now in progress.’
- ‘I've spent the past three days at the conference, among folks who are wrestling not only with the genome, but also with the proteome, the transcriptome, the reactome, and the metabolome.’
- ‘Therefore, the metabolite composition of a cell or organism, the metabolome, is linked to the transcriptome and to the physiological state of the plant.’
