Chemomics, mixed school of metabolomics and chemometrics.


Chemometrics has developed since the 1980s around a community mainly made up of near-infrared spectroscopy users.
Metabolomics has developed since the 2000s around users of mass spectroscopy (MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
The data pre-processing of these two communities are very different as they are specific to the acquisition tools. But once the data pre-processing stage is over, the two communities converge towards the same data analysis tools, many of which are already used in chemometrics.
The mixed school must encourage this natural convergence between the two communities.
The objective is to achieve a better mutual understanding and to initiate common work axes.
