Large-scale and effective studies of biological molecules with a different structural basis such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, lipids and numerous metabolites (including e.g. fatty acids, amino acids, purines, pyrimidines or steroids) is currently highly attractive because of the availability of modern instruments and tools for both separation and analysis (2-D chromatographs, capillary electrophoresis systems, microfluidics, mass spectrometers, powerful NMR spectrometers, DNA/RNA arrays and others). The development of genomics since the 1980s has continuously been accompanied by introducing proteomics, transcriptomics, glycomics, lipidomics, metabolomics and other omics technologies, which are centered to complex samples to generate huge datasets for extracting answers to many biological questions related to physiological as well as pathological processes.
