The underlying metabolite set library


I was trying to perform enrichment analysis for a bunch of metabolites and lipids. Firstly, some of my compounds name cannot be mapped. I was wondering whether it is because of different syntax used in compounds names. Also, I wanted compare the pathway sets for metabolites and lipids to see if there exist possible overlaps.

So I would like to ask if it is possible for users to look at the underlying metabolite set library?

Thank you!

Very good suggestion! Yes, we will support this feature to allow users to search, browse and download the metabolite sets in the coming release.

For the moment, you can install MetaboAnalystR package, which will download the corresponding metabolite set library before performing enrichment analysis. You can then inspect metabolite sets using RStudio
