Supplementary Material

Two additional figures supporting our results are provided. Figure S1 shows the results of PCA for classification among different Tanner stages and PLSR for correlation between Tanner stages and the metabolome in the plasma data from boys and girls. Figure S2 illustrates the relationship between observed and predicted physical activities by PLSR based on the urine and plasma metabolomes of adolescents and the corresponding loading plots of PLSR.
