These training events are offered by our Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Cores (RCMRCs) and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. For a complete listing of metabolomics events, please see our Events Calendar.

September, 2016

2016 International Summer Sessions in Metabolomics
September 12-23, 2016
Davis, CA, USA
The West Coast Metabolomics Center organizes an instructional course for biologists, clinical researchers and metabolomics practitioners. This course will span 12 days from September 12-23, 2016. The course will include hands-on training in mass spectrometry, data processing and data interpretation. 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:

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

October, 2016

Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Symposium
October 15-16, 2016
Rochester, MN

Mayo Clinic will host a Metabolomics Symposium from Saturday, October 15-Sunday, October 16, 2016, in Rochester. The event will feature presentations on the practice and theory of metabolomics applications, latest research in metabolomics and networking opportunities. NEW THIS YEAR: October 17 (Monday morning), a focused workshop is available to a small group of individuals based on availability.

This event is open to beginner and established researchers, students, and postdoctoral fellows.

The symposium will feature Mayo Clinic faculty and other world-renown experts:

  • K. Sreekumaran Nair, MD, PhD, Mayo Clinic
  • Robert Gerszten, MD, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
  • Arthur Edison, PhD, University of Georgia
  • Zoltan Takats, PhD, Imperial College, London
  • Christopher Newgard, PhD, Duke University School of Medicine
  • Ian Lanza, PhD, Mayo Clinic

NEW! Optional workshop:
October 17, 2016 (Monday morning)

A focused workshop is available to a limited group of individuals based on availability. This is open to non-Mayo Clinic guests only. Participants will spend time with leading experts in informatics and protocol and sample collection. The cost of the four-hour workshop is $100. Scholarships are available to scholars and junior faculty.

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)
