2017 UAB Metabolomics Workshop
July 16-21, 2017
Birmingham, AL, USA

The 2017 UAB Metabolomics Workshop will be held July 16-21 in Birmingham, Alabama. There will be slots for 40 attendees. We particularly encourage graduate students and postdoctoral and clinical fellows. Those at US universities and institutes may qualify for support from NIH funding. We also encourage applications from all levels of faculty and other research personnel as well as all genders and ethnicities.

The themes in this 5th year of the workshop are:
  • Design of a metabolomics experiment
  • Sample stability and extraction methods
  • Analytical systems (nuclear magnetic resonance and gas- and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry)
    • Targeted metabolomics
    • Untargeted metabolomics
    • Quantitative metabolomics
  • Pre-processing of analytical data (Mzmine 2 and XCMSonline, and Chenomx)
  • Statistical analysis of the data (MetaboAnalyst, Simca, SAS)
  • Metabolite databases (METLIN, HMDB, LIPIDMAPS, PubChem, ChemSpider)
  • Identification of metabolites (MetaboSearch, MSMS analysis)
  • Metabolite pathway analysis (Mummichog, KEGG, GeneGo, Ingenuity)
  • Integrated –omics (MetabNet, 3Omics)
  • Advanced elective sessions (Imaging mass spectrometry, isotope ratio outlier analysis, Ion mobility, Command line and R programs)
Electives will allow attendees to fine tune their training experience.

August, 2017

2017 International Summer Sessions in Metabolomics
April 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)

September, 2017

Metabolomics Consortium 2017 Annual Program Meeting

September 27 - 28, 2017
University of California, Davis
Davis, CA

This is an invitation-only meeting for the NIH Common Fund Metabolomics Consortium.

American Society for Mass Spectromotrey (ASMS) Asilomar Conference, Impact of Metabolomics in Translational and Clinical Research
September 29 - October 3, 2017
Pacific Grove, CA, USA

This conference will highlight contributions by recognized leaders in metabolomics that are aimed at translating discoveries from the laboratory into the clinic. As a result, this meeting should be of great interest to a wide-ranging group of graduate students, post-docs, and research scientists who are engaged in and want to learn more about this field of research.

November, 2017

Top Down Proteomics
November 2-3, 2017
Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor, Boston, MA, USA

In this workshop, world-leading experts in top-down MS-based proteomics will present the most advanced technologies and approaches. The workshop will cover a wide range of topics, including sample preparation, intact protein separation, MS and MS/MS for intact proteins, bioinformatics and data analysis tools for top-down proteomics, as well as the biomedical applications. Each presentation will be a tutorial aimed at beginners/newcomers to the top-down proteomics field. The Workshop will conclude with a dynamic moderated discussion/quiz session.
