An Introduction to Best Practices in Processing Mass Spectrometry-Based Metabolomics Data

In this session, an introduction to the main steps and concepts involved in a typical workflow to process and prepare mass spectrometry-based metabolomics data for statistical analysis will be provided. Challenges and benefits of the different workflow steps will be discussed through a number of examples.

Ralf Weber is the Director of Bioinformatics for the Phenome Centre Birmingham (United Kingdom).

His research team’s interests include the development and application of data processing, biostatistics and data mining tools to facilitate biochemical annotation and interpretation of clinical and toxicological metabolomics data.

He obtained his BSc degree in Bioinformatics from the HAN University of Applied Sciences in Nijmegen (Netherlands). In 2007 he moved to the University of Birmingham where he completed a Ph.D. in computational mass spectrometry-based metabolomics. He continued to work as a Research Fellow from 2010 – 2016 and was involved in a variety of clinical, toxicology and computational-focused research projects. During spring 2016 he was a visiting researcher at the School of Computer Science and Technology, Harbin Institute of Technology (China). He is a co-founder of and trainer in the Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre since 2015, and a past committee member of the Early-career Members Network of the international Metabolomics Society from 2013 – 2016. He is currently a member of the Boards of Directors of the international Metabolomics Society.
