Introduction to Metabolomics for the Microbiologist Training Course
November 26, 2018, 04:40:55 AM
: Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.
: 30 January - 1 February 2019 | 9 - 11 October 2019
: The course is aimed at PhD students and post-doctoral researchers.
This three-day course introduces how untargeted metabolomics can be applied to study microbial systems in academic and industrial research. The course provides an overview of the metabolomics pipeline, experimental design, sample preparation and data acquisition. The course is led by experts in the field of metabolomics and will include lectures, hands-on laboratory sessions in sample preparation and data acquisition and computer workshops focused on data processing and data analysis.
Introduction to metabolomics, both targeted and untargeted approaches
Experimental design and the importance of quality control samples in untargeted metabolomics
Analytical strategies applied in metabolomics with a focus on mass spectrometry
Hands-on laboratory sessions focused on sample preparation and to include metabolic quenching and extraction procedures, intracellular and exometabolome samples, and polar and non-polar extraction methods
Hands-on laboratory sessions focused on sample analysis for untargeted metabolomics studies using an Acquity UPLC coupled to a Xevo QToF mass spectrometer
Hands-on workshop focused on data processing and data analysis
An introduction to metabolite identification
Question and answer session with the experts
: A limited number of bursaries are available for PhD students funded by NERC.
