Microbial Metabonomics

Genomics and proteomics explore the activities of life from the level of genes and proteins respectively. In fact, many life activities in cells occur at the level of metabolites, such as cell signal release, energy transfer, and intercellular communication, which are regulated by metabolites. Genes and protein expression are closely linked, and metabolites are more reflective of the cell's environment, which in turn is closely related to the nutritional status of cells, the effects of drugs and environmental pollutants, and the influence of other external factors. So some people think that genomics and proteomics tell you what might happen, while metabolomics tells you what actually happened.
