[COURSE] Introduction to Nutritional Metabolomics

Course dates
01 July 2019 - 05 July 2019

Place: Copenhagen

Info, sign-up, program 

The course will provide an overview on LC-MS based untargeted metabolomics and its application in nutrition. It will be delivered using a mixture of lectures, hands-on data preparation and analysis, computer-based practical sessions, and discussions. Visits to wet labs and instructions on human sample preparation procedures is included but with minimal hands-on.

The students will go through common steps in a typical metabolomics study using a real-life case. This case study includes collected plasma (or urine) samples from a nutritional intervention. The sample preparation and analysis on UPLC-QTOF has been conducted and the students will further process and analyse the acquired data with various free-ware tools (MZmine, Workflow4Metabolomics and Metaboanalyst). They will finally work on identification of relevant metabolites using several web-based structure elucidation tools. The course will finalize by presentations of reports generated by the students based on the case study.

The course will be structured as initial short lectures on theory followed by hands-on exercises which will teach the students to transfer the theoretical information to practice.
