Abstract

Precision medicine, space exploration, drug discovery to characterization of dark chemical space of habitats and organisms, metabolomics takes a centre stage in providing answers to diverse biological, biomedical, and environmental questions. With technological advances in mass-spectrometry and spectroscopy platforms that aid in generation of information rich datasets that are complex big-data, data analytics tend to co-evolve to match the pace of analytical instrumentation. Software tools, resources, databases, and solutions help in harnessing the concealed information in the generated data for eventual translational success. In this review, ~ 85 metabolomics software resources, packages, tools, databases, and other utilities that appeared in 2020 are introduced to the research community. In Table 1 the computational dependencies and downloadable links of the tools are provided, and the resources are categorized based on their utility. The review aims to keep the community of metabolomics researchers updated with all the resources developed in 2020 at a collated avenue, in line with efforts form 2015 onwards to help them find these at one place for further referencing and use.
