Metabolome Searcher

Please cite the use of the software by citing this article : Dhanasekaran, A.R., Pearson, J.L., Ganesan, B. & B.C. Weimer. 2015. Metabolome Searcher: a high throughput tool for metabolite identification and metabolic pathway mapping directly from mass spectrometry and metabolites . BMC Bioinformatics.16:62

Search for all pathways containing compounds of interest.

Enter a COMPOUND by name, chemical formula, smiles structure, or molecular weight or monoisotopic mass (e.g. 60, 60.1, 60-70 for a range)

If mass value, check query type:

Electrospray Mode:

Number of proton charge states:

Mass Deviation:

(Enter a single value or a range for mass deviation. For example, 100 or 0-100. Maximum value should be 500 ppm or 0.05 Da)

*Adduct or Deduct Molecule:

(Input a list of comma separated atoms or groups or their monoisotopic mass. For example: Na,Cl,NH2,CH3,69.012)

*Maximum number of adducts/deducts :

*Upload a tab-delimited text file (extension '.txt' only) containing a list of compounds:

*Upload a MARKERLYNX file:


Select organism(s)

Fields with * are OPTIONAL; all other fields need to be filled

Please turn off auto-entry options in your browser prior to using the searcher

A user manual will soon be available. Please carefully read through the instructions prior to using the searcher

The searcher has been tested for operating system and browser compatibility and shown to be comprehensively successful in all OSs with Google Chrome, Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Mozilla's Firefox and Apple's Safari. These are our recommended browsers.

For questions about the searcher and requests for metabolome databases to be created, please contact Dr. Balasubramanian Ganesan

Please point out any existing bugs or specific features that you would like to be available
