Metabolite Identification with the Q Exactive and LTQ Orbitrap Training Course
Venue: Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.
Date: 16-17 April 2018 and 22-23 November 2018
Level: The course is aimed at PhD students and post-doctoral researchers

Overview
This 2-day course will provide a hands-on approach to teach the latest techniques and tools available to perform metabolite identification in non-targeted metabolomics studies. The course will provide significant hands-on experience of using the mass spectrometers (Q Exactive and LTQ Orbitrap mass spectrometry family), software tools and databases.

Topics include:
•   Importance of mass spectral interpretation
•   Conversion of raw data to molecular formula and putative metabolite annotations
•   MS/MS experiments for on-line data acquisition using the QE (Data dependent acquisition and Data independent acquisition)
•   MS/MS and MSn for sample fractions using the LTQ-Orbitrap
•   Searching mass spectral libraries and tools for mass spectral interpretation

Bursaries: A limited number of bursaries are available for PhD students funded by NERC.
