University of MelbourneAustralia

Dr. Roessner obtained her PhD in Biochemistry at the MPI for Molecular Plant Physiology in Germany, where she developed novel GC-MS methods to analyse metabolites in plants. The field of metabolomics emerged together with the application of sophisticated data mining, and it is today an important tool in biological sciences, systems biology and biomarker discovery. In 2003, Dr. Roessner moved to Australia where she established a GC-MS and LC-MS based metabolomics platform at the University of Melbourne, node of the Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics. Since 2007, Dr. Roessner has also been involved in the setup of Metabolomics Australia (MA), an Australian federal government investment, through Bioplatforms Australia Ltd. and currently leads the MA node at the University of Melbourne.

Metabolomics is a rapidly emerging field in life sciences, which aims to identify and quantify metabolites in a biological system. Analytical chemistry is combined with sophisticated informatics and statistics tools to determine and understand metabolic changes upon genetic or environmental perturbations. Together with other 'omics analyses, such as genomics and proteomics, metabolomics plays an important role in functional genomics and systems biology studies in any biological science. This book will provide the reader with summaries of the state-of-the-art of technologies and methodologies, especially in the data analysis and interpretation approaches, as well as give insights into exciting applications of metabolomics in human health studies, safety assessments, and plant and microbial research.
