Dr. Jones’ laboratory is focused on the development and application of metabolomics technology for global untargeted analyses with mass spectrometry. Reliable identification of metabolites in untargeted experiments is a major bottle neck for the field. To address this challenge, Dr. Jones has developed a method called Metabolome Identification by Systematic Stable Isotope Labeling Experiments (MISSILE) which can determine the chemical formula of any metabolite de novo, greatly improving the confidence of such annotations. Biologically, this method is being applied to the study of stress response in yeast and in disease states such as Alzheimer’s.
