The Metabolomics Consortium Data Repository and Coordinating Center (DRCC) is now accepting metabolomics data for small and large studies on cells, tissues and organisms via the Metabolomics Workbench. We can accommodate a variety of metabolite analyses, including, but not limited to MS and NMR. In order to ensure reproducibility and interoperable use of data, we require experimental metadata (see tutorials) to be deposited along with the metabolite measurements. Processed data (measurements) maybe in the form of quantitated metabolite concentrations, MS peak height/area values, LC retention times, NMR binned areas, etc. Raw data in the form of MS and NMR binary files and associated parameter files may also be uploaded. We accept data from both targeted and untargeted studies. The Metabolomics Workbench also provides a suite of tools for analysis and visualization of the data. Step-by-step instructions for the whole process are provided below.
Experimental data generated by NIH Metabolomics Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Cores (RCMRC)s * and other NIH-sponsored projects is available for searching and analysis, via online interfaces. Users may also search the Metabolomics Workbench Metabolite Database, which now contains over 60,000 entries.
* The RTI RCMRC is currently preparing a publication regarding this data set and reserves the right to first publication. The dataset will be updated with the literature reference once the manuscript is accepted.
