Researchers measured the concentration of various metabolites in plasma or red blood cells taken from volunteers, and found metabolites whose concentration was specifically higher or lower in elderly individuals. In this picture, two researchers are spreading these compound structure formulae beside them, and discussing correlations of concentration between two metabolites by plotting scatter charts using a lattice of a shoji door. A bamboo fence that is likened to a clustered heatmap of metabolites can be seen over there. For drawing this image, we referred to a research paper by Chaleckis et al. (2016) Proc. Natl Acad. Sci. USA, vol. 113, pp. 4252-4259. DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1603023113.
