Rumours of the death of MSI have been greatly exaggerated...... August 06, 2011, 08:40:08 AM I wanted to get the ball rolling for resurrecting the discussions concerning MSI. I’ve just had published a paper that may be of interest to anyone involved in standards which can be found at A Metadata description of the data in \"A metabolomic comparison of urinary changes in type 2 diabetes in mouse, rat, and human.\" Griffin JL, Atherton HJ, Steinbeck C, Salek RM. BMC Res Notes. 2011 Jul 29;4(1):272. MetaboLights is making good progress at producing a central repository for metabolomics but we would like some feedback about where we are going and also I’m aware of other initiatives – with a workshop at nih in September and advances by metabolomics Australia. I would be interested in feedback on the paper and also whether a TC might be useful.
