Metabolites are basically intermediates as well as products of metabolism. This term is usually applied fro small molecules. A small metabolite is very much involved directly with standard growth, progress and reproduction. An inferior metabolite is not openly concerned in those processes, but typically has significant environmental function. Some of the very well known examples of metabolites are antibiotics and pigments.

The metabolome basically forms a very big net of metabolic reactions, where outputs from single enzymatic chemical reaction are inputs to additional substance reactions. Such systems have been described as hypercycles.
