The CMML is part of the analytical infrastructure unit within the Center of Excellence on Plant Sciences (CEPLAS), with a strong focus on the analysis of metabolites of the central carbon and nitrogen metabolism. These primary metabolites are essential for an organism to grow, develop and reproduce. This includes catabolic as well as anabolic metabolic pathways and thereby several metabolic classes such as small organic acids, amino acids, sugars, fatty acids and nucleotides. Metabolites within and between metabolic classes may differ greatly in physico-chemical properties and their analysis require adequate analytical techniques to meet this variety.
In the CMML we use combinations of chromatographic and mass spectrometry approaches to analyze complex intra- and extracellular metabolome sample from different plant tissues, algae and cyanobacteria cultures.

Core facilities as central research structures are essential to fulfil the individual needs of researchers for state-of-the-art technology and services. The Medical Faculty and the Faculty for Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Heinrich Heine University have joined forces to support each other in building a network of core facilities to advance research in the life sciences on the HHU campus.
