Think big: from study design to metabolomics data interpretation
December 2 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Venue: Virtual, 9:00 AM PST
Overview: In this short course, we will discuss pitfalls in study designs that may severely hamper metabolomic studies, shortly reviewing power analyses, bias in studies, biological and chemical controls. We will very briefly review the types of metabolomic assays that give investigators data and problems associated with the choice of assays. Most of the time will be allotted to data interpretation, i.e. what to do once you have received metabolomics data, once data have been curated and once statistics have been completed: how can you then further interpret the data, how to generate new hypotheses, how to link biological data and other -omics data, and how to utilize databases that are available for free online.
