Databases Food Metabolome Repository
A repository of metabolome data obtained from various Japanese foods using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS).
In untargeted metabolome analyses using LC-MS, many "unknown" compound peaks are usually detected. No candidates are found in compound databases for these unknown peaks when searched by their mass values. Information of a specificity of samples for an unknown peak can help further annotation and identification of the peak. Food Metabolome Repository contains information of all peaks including unknowns obtained from more than 100 foods, and users can search the foods that may contain compounds with specified mass values.
