Metabolic fingerprinting

Recent advances in DNA sequencing have made it relatively easy to acquire the full genotype of an individual, but it is equally important to match those genes to their functions. One useful step is to build up a 'metabolic phenotype' outlining all the processes operating to sustain the individual?s life.
