1-day introduction to Metabolomics aimed at those with little or no knowledge of the subject.
Absolute Basics of Metabolomics
This 1-day course provides an overview of the history, development and current use of Metabolomics in fields such as clinical, environmental and biotechnology applications.
The course opens with a “walk-though” summary of the workflows in a Metabolomics study and goes on to outline the considerations when designing a metabolomics experiment or study including sampling and quality control, metadata and sample preparation techniques.
The course will provide an overview of different Mass Spectrometry-based instrumentation and other techniques (such as NMR and Infrared) used for discovery and targeted analysis.
The course covers data processing and statistical analysis for Metabolomics including a worked example using data analysis software. This section will cover processing and preparation of mass spectrometry data and will give an overview of Multivariate Statistical Analysis techniques for "Biomarker Discovery". It will go through the methods and tools used for creating and mapping data to Metabolic Pathways and includes an overview of the various commercial and freeware software tools available.
The final part of the course goes on to explore the frontiers of Metabolomics and advancements in the field.
