The rise of metabolomics to international scientific stature was underlined in 2004, when the Metabolomics Technology Development Initiative emerged from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States as a roadmap to understanding biological pathways and networks. As stated in the initiative,

A general aim of metabolomics is to identify, measure and interpret the complex time-related concentration, activity and flux of endogenous metabolites in cells, tissues, and other biosamples… (Castle 2008)
