Metabolite identification with the Q Exactive and LTQ Orbitrap Elite Course November 26, 2018, 04:50:28 AM Venue: Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.Dates: 4 - 5 April 2019 | 20 - 21 November 2019Level: The course is suitable for PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who have been actively applying metabolomics for a minimum of 6 months. If students or researchers would like to take the course but do not have the recommended level of experience please contact the course administrator for advice.OverviewThis 2-day course provides a hands-on approach to teach attendees about the latest techniques and tools available to perform metabolite identification in non-targeted metabolomics studies. The course is led by experts working within the field of metabolomics, and will include a significant proportion of hands-on experience of using mass spectrometers, software tools and databases. A maximum of four people will be working on each mass spectrometer (Q Exactive and LTQ-Orbitrap Elite) in a session.Topics include:Importance of mass spectral interpretationTypes of data which can be collected on the QE and LTQ-Orbitrap Elite (m/z, retention time, MS/MS, MSn)Conversion of raw data to molecular formula and putative metabolite annotationsMS/MS experiments in metabolic phenotyping for on-line data acquisition using the QE (Data Dependent Analysis, Data Independent Analysis)MS/MS and MSn experiments for sample fractions using the LTQ-Orbitrap EliteMass spectral libraries (using mzCloud)Searching mass spectral librariesTools for mass spectral interpretationIn silico fragmentation (using MassFrontier)Reporting standards for metabolite identificationQuestion and answer session with the expertsBursaries: A limited number of bursaries are available for PhD students funded by NERC.
