International Summer Sessions in Metabolomics 2021
August 30 - September 10$4500.00
The course is completely redesigned for an online format and will also be recorded for the participants to view at a later time. All software training has transitioned to a virtual machine environment so training can be done from any location. Virtual machines are hosted by Amazon Web Services and can be accessed using either a PC or a Mac computer. To guarantee the same hands-on quality that you would experience in our face-to-face course, every unit is taught using interactive tools such as polling, using the annotation tool, utilizing non-verbal feedback, live questions, chat, and group work in breakout rooms.
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
untargeted data processing and exercises on MS-DIAL software
exercises on identification of unknowns by cheminformatics software workflows (incl MS-FINDER, CFM-ID, and various databases and small software routines)
data normalization and transformation with and without internal standards and quality controls
multivariate and univariate statistics
