Ionomics is the study of elemental accumulation in living systems using high-throughput elemental profiling. This approach has been applied extensively in plants for forward and reverse genetics, screening diversity panels, and modeling of physiological states. In this review, I will discuss some of the advantages and limitations of the ionomics approach as well as the important parameters to consider when designing ionomics experiments, and how to evaluate ionomics data.
