Metabolomics Course

Metabolomics is the fastest growing area of life sciences and involves the systematic study of the small molecular metabolites in a cell, tissue, biofluid or cell culture media that are the tangible result of cellular processes or responses to an environmental stress. The main goal of metabolomics is to identify a list of differentially regulated metabolites for use in biomarker discovery, pathway analysis, model construction, and scientific literature. The objective of the Metabolomics Course is to acquaint the learner with emerging trends in metabolomics as well as equip him with skills for generating and interrogating metabolomic data. The Metabolomics Course is ideal for students and researchers working in the pharma, biotech, food, and agricultural industries.

In this 5-day Metabolomics Course, students receive hands-on training on:
  • Experimental design of metabolomics studies
  • Sample preparation including extraction, chromatography, and ionization efficiency maximization
  • Generation of raw metabolomic LC/MS or GC/MS data
  • Pre-processing data analysis including conversion of raw data to the mXMZL format, feature detection, retention time correction and statistical analysis
  • Metabolite identification
  • Hypothesis testing
  • Experimental validation
Using the most powerful software, you will gain the latest skills in metabolomics data analysis.
  • Web Resources – NCBI Tools, HMDB, MetaboAnalyst, Metabolights, OmicTools, XCMS(2), OpenMS, MVAPACK, PubChem, METLIN, KEGG, Metabo Miner, Metabolomic Analysis and Visualization ENgine (MAVEN), MolFind, COLMAR, MeltDB
  • Software – Proteowizard, R, Bioconductor, XCMS, AMDIS, MATLAB, TopSpin, rNMR, batchcorr, Metabnorm
  • HPC – KENCLUST
  • Datasets – HMDB, METLIN, PubChem, Metabolights
This is a 5-day course held on the fourth week of every month.
  • Definition, Scope and Applications of Metabolomics
  • Applications of metabolomics in diagnostics, pharmaceutical research, systems biology, nutrition, modelling, agricultural research, toxicology, and in the food industry
  • Bioinformatics Tools used in Metabolomics
  • Metabolomics Workflow – Experimental design, sample preparation, sample analysis, statistical analysis
  • Exercises
  • Experimental Workflow – Metabolite Identification, Hypothesis Testing, Experimental Validation, Exercises and Discussion
  • Case studies and discussions
This training is ideal for people in biological, medical, pharma, and biotechnology industries who wish to gain skills on how to accelerate drug discovery, identify disease biomarkers, personalize medicine, detect metabolic conditions, conduct toxicology studies, select optimal cultivars, among others.
