Abstract

Metabolite profiling is a fast growing technology and is useful for phenotyping and diagnostic analyses of plants. It is also rapidly becoming a key tool in functional annotation of genes and in the comprehensive understanding of the cellular response to biological conditions. Metabolomics approaches have recently been used to assess the natural variance in metabolite content between individual plants, an approach with great potential for the improvement of the compositional quality of crops. Here, we assess the contribution of metabolite profiling to these areas.
