The HUSERMET Project
the human serum metabolome in health and disease...

    

Project Overview


The HUSERMET project was funded in 2005 through the "Link Scheme in Applied Genomics" initiative by the BBSRC and MRC and the DTI. It was a collaboration between The University of Manchester, GlaxoSmithKline and AstraZeneca.


The HUSERMET project involved three key studies:


Since biological samples are very complex, containing thousands of compounds at different concentrations, the HUSERMET project required methods designed to maximise the number of compounds detected.

  • The chemical properties of a metabolite influences both its function and its ease of analysis. As a result, no single method exists that can be used to detect and identify all metabolites
  • In order to build a comprehensive picture of the metabolome and detect as many compounds as possible, a number of different methods were used including:
  • The data obtained will be made public for others to use in their research


Volunteers were recruited with the assistance of:
