Bayesil – Unraveling of the Unknown Autonomously

Feature article contributed by Bob Stanley, Research Assistant, The Metabolomics Innovation Centre, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

1H Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is a powerful technique used to identify the structure and identity of a compound. NMR has cast unspeakable fear into the minds of undergraduates taking their first organic chemistry course, yet NMR has become an indispensable tool in the field of metabolomics. NMR spectra contain rich information about metabolites in an individual’s biofluids, thus determining the individual’s metabolic profile. The metabolic profile allows the identification of diseases at all stages and may even be predictive of diseases that have not yet been diagnosed.

Unfortunately, NMR spectral analysis is laborious, prone to error, and not highly reproducible. 1H NMR was originally designed to identify pure compounds and not multiple compounds within a complex mixture. Biofluids, such as serum, plasma, and cerebral spinal fluid, contain hundreds, if not thousands, of metabolites and their NMR spectra are therefore highly complex. The compound identification process requires an experienced analyst to dissect the spectrum mixture by manually comparing spectra against a large number of pure compound reference spectra. Needless to say, this error-prone process is time-consuming and requires highly-trained personnel.

Enter Bayesil, the first system that is fully automated to accurately identify and quantify metabolites from the NMR spectra of complex mixtures. Bayesil was developed by a group of scientists in Alberta, Canada, led by the director of The Metabolomics Innovation Centre (TMIC), Dr. David Wishart, and is freely accessible through Bayesil allows spectral processing and profiling of 1D 1H NMR spectra collected on standard NMR instruments such as Agilent/Varian or Bruker. This revolutionary system enables an individual with little or no experience to process a complex 1H NMR spectrum quickly and autonomously. If a scientist is able to collect a 1H NMR spectrum, he or she will be able to obtain a spectral profile using Bayesil. Bayesil will accelerate developments in the field of metabolomics by significantly reducing the time required to accurately determine a metabolic profile of a complex biofluids sample.

 MetaboInterview Icon


This section features interviews with prominent researchers in the field of metabolomics. The aim of these interviews is to shed light on metabolomics researchers around the world and give them an opportunity to share their metabolomics story. In this issue, we feature an interview with Vladimir Tolstikov.

Director of Metabolomics at BERG, Framingham, Massachusetts, USA
Vladimir Tolstikov


Vladimir Tolstikov, Ph.D., is a Director of Metabolomics at BERG. He received his B.S. and M.S. in Organic Chemistry in 1977 from the M.V. Lomonosov Institute of Fine Chemical Technology, in Moscow, Russia. He received Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry in 1983 from the Institute of Chemical Means for Plant Protection, Moscow, Russia. He is a pioneer in HILIC separations development applied to Metabolomics. During his career, he worked in leading research institutions in the USA, Germany, Hungary, and Russian Federation. Among these institutions are the world renowned Shemyakin-Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry RAS, G. F. Gause Institute of New Antibiotics RAMS, Max Plank Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, NIAID NIH, UC Davis, and Eli Lilly and Company. He joined BERG in 2014, has authored/contributed to five book chapters and 59 research articles, and participated in 59 conferences.

Metabolomics Interview (MN, MetaboNews; VT, Vladimir Tolstikov)

MN: How did you get involved in metabolomics?

VT: I am an organic chemist by background and have been synthesizing small molecules, peptides, oligos, and immunoconjugates. Characterization of the newly synthesized substances requires proof of the composition and structural assignments utilizing MS, NMR, and other analytical techniques. When I was hired as a research scientist at Max Plank in Golm, Germany, and started working with a first-ever Finnigan LCQ ion trap, it was really fun for me to identify unknown molecules using their fragments. I did just the opposite for years—synthesis. At this very time, I realized that HILIC separation, which was then rarely utilized, might be a solution for the analysis of polar metabolites: Tolstikov VV, Fiehn O: Analysis of highly polar compounds of plant origin: combination of hydrophilic interaction chromatography and electrospray ion trap mass spectrometry. Anal Biochem. 2002 Feb 15; 301(2):298-307,

MN: What are some of the most exciting aspects of your work in metabolomics?

VT: The most exciting aspects of my work in metabolomics are the results of metabolomics data integration into a systems biology protocols. This field is progressing with great support from computing abilities nowadays. Watching how different computational approaches are helping to advance our understanding of biology using omics information is very exciting. An integrated omics analysis on a foundation of metabolomics will streamline our understanding of patient populations and drug response, assist in target discovery and the elucidation of drugs' mechanisms of action, etc.

MN: What key metabolomics initiatives are you pursuing at your research centre or institute?

VT: The specifics of metabolomics protocols in the pharmaceutical industry dictate GLP compliance including quite high requirements for analytical method reproducibility, quality controls, methods complementarity, data extraction, etc. There is always a tradeoff between throughput and quality and it is my responsibility to select and maintain appropriate protocols. Another strict cutoff is the unknowns. Unidentified ions—unnamed molecules have no further use in pathway and network analysis. Therefore, we focus on identification and support with the authentic standards. Sample validity became an important concern and requires developing tests where housekeeping metabolites are monitored, especially when considering projects involved bio-banks and/or organizations utilizing different sample processing protocols.

MN: What is happening in your country in terms of metabolomics?

VT: It is definitely progressing. A PubMed search on "metabolomics and USA (affiliation)" returned 315 publications in 2014 and already 221 publications in July 2015. One can observe growing initiatives from the NIH, supporting Metabolomics Centers located in different states. This is definitely assisting academia in gaining knowledge. Industry has their own routes promoting in-house and CRO activities. The latest tendency in the pharmaceutical industry is to establish in-house services in parallel to using CROs and/or other outsourcing services.

MN: How do you see your work in metabolomics being applied today or in the future?

VT: My work in metabolomics is being amply applied today. I have significantly contributed to the setup and development of mass-spectrometry based metabolomics pipelines in academia and in the pharmaceutical industry. All these facilities are functioning very well and produce quality metabolomics data. I am expecting increasing demands for metabolomics data and tracer metabolomics data in the future.

MN: As you see it, what are metabolomics' greatest strengths?

VT: Metabolomics greatest strengths are in its significant analytical capability and wide applicability. Its analytical capability is steadily improving with the utilization of advanced techniques including two-dimensional chromatography and high-resolution mass spectrometry. Speaking of applications, one can find metabolomics studies applied to the fields of toxicology, functional genomics, nutrigenomics, plant physiology, microbiology, metabolic engineering, drug development, personalized medicine, etc. The ability of metabolomics to integrate with the other omics data offers really great potentials to research and development in different fields.

MN: What do you see as the greatest barriers for metabolomics?

VT: The greatest barriers are as always education, education, education. It takes lots of different skills to advance towards perfection starting with the study design and moving forward towards sample preparation, sample analysis, data extraction, data normalization, basic statistics, advanced statistics, data visualization, pathway analysis, and network analysis. The educational process is not limited to metabolomics teams. It should also be offered to collaborators, customers, bio-banks, and others.

MN: What improvements, technological or otherwise, need to take place for metabolomics to really take off?

VT: It has already taken off. Obviously better, more sensitive and robust analytical instrumentation is needed as well as more efficient data extraction and processing packages. Industrial-level GLP compliance requires SOP and method reproducibility between laboratories, states and countries. Laboratory protocols should be improved to the level of industrial protocols in order to be further used. There is not much value in published methods and/or data if no one can reproduce it. Prior execution of the metabolomics protocols study design must be supported by statistical power calculations that recommend an appropriate sample size reflecting the nature of the project, e.g., a cell-based study, pre-clinical (animal) study, clinical cross-sectional, or clinical longitudinal study. Following these recommendations would significantly stabilize metabolomics findings and improve cross-validation results.

MN: How does the future look in terms of funding for metabolomics?

VT: In general, funding research is uncertain; there are good times and bad times. However, with the growing interest in metabolomics, there is always the possibility for the reallocation of funds in a favor of promising trends.

MN: What role can metabolomics standards play?

VT: They play a critical role. Authentic standards are much needed for daily quality control reporting on system suitability, calibration curve preparations, metabolites, and metabolic biomarkers ID validation. Tracer metabolomics requires the utilization of labeled standards. The quality of the synthetic standards is important to understand. When non-chiral synthesis protocols are applied, the products may contain isomers and diastereomers that do not necessarily exist in nature.

MN: Do you have any other comments that you wish to share about metabolomics?

VT: I foresee a great future for metabolomics in a different fields of its applications. I have great expectations for the use of metabolomics for patient stratification in the future for clinical trials as well as in disease-related and drug-related biomarker discovery.
