Metabolomics is a continuously dynamic field of research that is driven by demanding research questions and technological advances alike. In this review we highlight selected recent and ongoing developments in the area of mass spectrometry-based metabolomics. The field of view that can be seen through the metabolomics lens can be broadened by adoption of separation techniques such as hydrophilic interaction chromatography and ion mobility mass spectrometry (going broader). For a given biospecimen, deeper metabolomic analysis can be achieved by resolving smaller entities such as rare cell populations or even single cells using nano-LC and spatially resolved metabolomics or by extracting more useful information through improved metabolite identification in untargeted metabolomic experiments (going deeper). Integration of metabolomics with other (omics) data allows researchers to further advance in the understanding of the complex metabolic and regulatory networks in cells and model organisms (going further). Taken together, diverse fields of research from mechanistic studies to clinics to biotechnology applications profit from these technological developments.
