Application of Metabolomics in Fungal Research

Molecules. 2022 Oct 29;27(21):7365. doi: 10.3390/molecules27217365.


Metabolomics is an essential method to study the dynamic changes of metabolic networks and products using modern analytical techniques, as well as reveal the life phenomena and their inherent laws. Currently, more and more attention has been paid to the development of metabolic histochemistry in the fungus field. This paper reviews the application of metabolomics in fungal research from five aspects: identification, response to stress, metabolite discovery, metabolism engineering, and fungal interactions with plants.

Keywords: application; fungi; metabolomics.
