We are indebted to faculty who have also previously contributed to the development of the workshop: Dr. Kathleen Stringer (University of Michigan), Dr. Dean P. Jones (Emory University), Dr. Grier P. Page (RTI International), Dr. Olga Ilkayeva (Duke University), Dr. Nikolaos Psychogios (Shire Pharmaceuticals) and Dr. Natalie Serkova (University of Colorado-Denver) and to faculty in receipt of NIH Administrative Supplements (Dr. Lalita Shevde-Sumant, R01 CA138850 and Dr. Adam Wende R00 HL111322).

We are also grateful for unrestricted support from Metabolon, Sciex and Waters. Acknowledgements are also given to Dr. N. Rama Krishna for the use of the Central Alabama NMR facility and to staff who assisted in the running of the workshop (UAB: Jennifer Spears, Lynn Waddell, Mikako Kawai, D. Ray Moore II, Landon Wilson, Ali Arabshahi, and Ronald Shin; RTI International, Rodney Snyder) and student trainees, Haley Albright, Kelly Walters and Sean Wilkinson.

Finally, the workshop has been enhanced by several plenary speakers: Dr. Stanley Hazen (Cleveland Clinic), Dr. Keith Baggerly (MD-Anderson), Dr. Richard Caprioli (Vanderbilt University), Dr. Arthur Edison (University of Florida) and Dr. David Wishart (University of Alberta), as well as speakers from several companies: Brigitte Simons and Jeremiah Tipton (SCIEX), Tom Beaty and John Shockcor (Waters) and Edward Karoly and Rob Mohney (Metabolon).

Metabolomics, a systems biology discipline representing analysis of known and unknown pathways of metabolism, has grown tremendously over the past 20 years. Because of its comprehensive nature, metabolomics requires careful consideration of the question(s) being asked, the scale needed to answer the question(s), collection and storage of the sample specimens, methods for extraction of the metabolites from biological matrices, the analytical method(s) to be employed and the quality control of the analyses, how collected data are correlated, the statistical methods to determine metabolites undergoing significant change, putative identification of metabolites and the use of stable isotopes to aid in verifying metabolite identity and establishing pathway connections and fluxes. This second part of a comprehensive description of the methods of metabolomics focuses on data analysis, emerging methods in metabolomics and the future of this discipline.
