April, 2017

Hands-on LC-MS Data processing and Statistics 2017
April 3-7, 2017
UC Davis, CA Alumni Center, Davis, CA, USA

This course will feature hands-on training with real-world metabolomics data covering LC/MS compound identification, data processing, statistical analysis, network mapping and data interpretation.

We will instruct using a variety of software, workflows, and algorithms but also give theoretical background information and overviews. We will focus on utilizing open source software and only refer to commercial or vendor software when necessary.

All participants will be trained on laptops that were specifically purchased for course training, with all software already installed and data available to use.

The course will include:

  • exercises on identification of unknowns by cheminformatics software workflows (incl CFM-ID, MassFrontier, and various databases and small software routines)
  • untargeted data processing and exercises on MZmine and MS-DIAL software
  • data normalizations and transformations with and without internal standards and Quality Controls
  • multivariate and univariate statistics (incl Devium, MetaboAnalyst and other software)
  • pathway mapping (incl MetaboAnalyst and MetaMapR)

August, 2017

2017 International Summer Sessions in Metabolomics
August 14-25, 2017
UC Davis, CA Alumni Center, Davis, CA, USA

"The West Coast Metabolomics Center organizes an instructional course for . . . a deeper and broader understanding in the field of Metabolomics. This course will span 12 days from August 14-25, 2017.

In order to serve the group interests best and have interesting open discussions . . . small class of 22 participants. The participants come always from all over the world and have a very diverse research background."

The course will include:

  • study design, including pitfall analysis and hidden biases in studies from microbial, plant, mouse and human cohort research
  • sample preparation and quality control
  • in-laboratory detailed discussions standard operating procedures for GC-MS and LC-MS data acquisitions
  • targeted metabolomics, including monitoring charts and use of isotope labeled internal standards
  • exercises on flux analysis in cancer cells by isotope tracer analysis
  • exercises on identification of unknowns by cheminformatics software workflows (incl CFM-ID, MassFrontier, MS-Finder, CSI:FingerID and various databases and small software routines)
  • untargeted data processing and exercises on MS-DIAL software , with comparisons to MZmine and XCMS
  • data normalizations and transformations with and without internal standards and Quality Controls
  • multivariate and univariate statistics (incl MetaboAnalyst and other software such as Metabox)
  • pathway mapping (incl MetaboAnalyst and MetaMapR)
