The Metabolome are all of the metabolites (products of the cell) of an organism. The origin of the word is derived from a metabolite and a chromosome.
These include endogenous and exogenous metabolites such as amino acids and drugs respectively. Organisms naturally make endogenous metabolites whereas exogenous are not naturally made. A metabolite usually is less than 1500 Da .
The metabolome can be measured by Mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy.
