FIGURE 26.25 Metabolome Analysis of Strawberries
Non-targeted metabolic analysis in strawberry. (A) Four consecutive stages of strawberry fruit development (G, green; W, white; T, turning; R, red) were subjected to metabolic analysis using FTMS. Similar fruit samples were used earlier to perform gene expression analysis using cDNA microarrays. (B) An example of high resolution (>100,000) separation of very close mass peaks in data obtained from the analysis of green and red stages of fruit development. Peaks marked with an X have the same mass, while peak Y is different by a mere 3ppm. Courtesy of Phenomenome Discoveries Inc., Saskatoon, Canada.
