An analysis of stomach and gastrointestinal samples suggests the Iceman munched on a high-fat diet of ibex, red deer, and einkorn plants before his final hike.

Elucidata, which makes software to support drug discovery, recently released a metabolomics analysis platform that includes machine learning technology.

The company will provide the services for the VA's Million Veteran Program, which is studying the link between genes and disease in US veteran volunteers.

ReviveMed's technology uses artificial intelligence-based analysis of metabolomics data for drug discovery and development.

The companies will offer a system for the identification and quantitation of metabolites in biological samples.

The researchers found multiple enzymes that indicate causes of dysregulated adaptive immunity and tissue damage in fatal Ebola virus disease.

The firm has settled on a set of metabolite biomarkers, along with an algorithm, for its first version of a test for arterial plaque buildup.

Multi-omics, mass spec-based imaging, and cardiovascular biomarkers received extra attention at MSACL US while small molecules continue to drive the field.

The deal joins Metabolon's metabolomics expertise with InnVentis' big data and machine learning platform.

While tools and technologies exist for identifying and measuring metabolites, analyzing such data remains a challenge, according to the NIH.
