04-16-2015 Jacquelyn Gosse represented the Mayo Clinic’s Metabolomics Resource Core at the Experimental Biology 2015 Exhibition at the Boston Convention Center on March 29-31. Almost 15,000 people attended the multidisciplinary, scientific meeting that featured plenary and award lectures, pre-meeting workshops, oral and posters sessions, on-site career services and exhibits of an array of informational booths, equipment, supplies and publications required for research labs and experimental study.
In addition to Mayo Clinic information, Ms. Gosse distributed the new NIH Common Fund Metabolomics Program flyer that shared information about the five other centers, which provided an opportunity for discussion based on where the attendee lived and which one was closest to them.
“We wanted to see if this idea would work – to bring our information to where a large group of researchers were already gathered,” said Ms. Gosse. “I had a goal of having direct and meaningful conversations with at least 100 people a day and I doubled that. There is great interest in this exciting area,” she said.
Invitation to Deposit Metabolomics Experimental Data
The Metabolomics Consortium Data Repository and Coordinating Center (DRCC) is now accepting metabolomics data for small and large studies on cells, tissues and organisms from NIH grantees/projects via the Metabolomics Workbench. We can accommodate a variety of metabolite analyses, including, but not limited to MS and NMR. The Metabolomics Workbench also provides a suite of tools for analysis and visualization of the data.
Invitation to Nominate Compounds for Synthesis
As part of the NIH Common Fund's Metabolomics Program, the Metabolite Standards Synthesis Core (MSSC) aims to provide metabolomics researchers with high quality metabolite standards.
We invite scientists to nominate compounds for synthesis. Nominated compounds will be reviewed by the NIH Common Fund’s executive committee, and prioritized for synthesis.
Metabolomics Workbench HighlightsMetabolomics Workbench REST Service
The REST service enables access to a variety of data (including metabolite structures, study metadata and experimental results). These requests may be carried out using a web browser or may be embedded in 3rd party applications or scripts to enable rapid programmatic access.
