Hands-on LC-MS Data processing and Statistics 2017

Please note that the courses are usually sold out 2 months in advance!

When: April 3-7, 2017

Where: UC Davis, CA Alumni Center

register here: Registration

This course will feature hands-on training with real-world metabolomics data covering LC/MS compound identification, data processing, statistical analysis, network mapping and data interpretation.

We will instruct using a variety of software, workflows, and algorithms but also give theoretical background information and overviews. We will focus on utilizing open source software and only refer to commercial or vendor software when necessary.

All participants will be trained on laptops that were specifically purchased for course training, with all software already installed and data available to use.

The course will include:

  1. exercises on identification of unknowns by cheminformatics software workflows (incl CFM-ID, MassFrontier, and various databases and small software routines)
  2. untargeted data processing and exercises on MS-DIAL software
  3. data normalization and transformation with and without internal standards and quality controls
  4. multivariate and univariate statistics (incl  MetaboAnalyst and other software)
  5. pathway mapping (incl MetaboAnalyst and MetaMapR)

The course fees are  $ 2,500 per participant to cover expenses for instructors, organization, materials and meals. Sorry, there are no exceptions.

2017 International Summer Sessions in Metabolomics

 

When: August 14- 25, 2017

Where: UC Davis Alumni Center

Registration: open now

Please, contact us now if you need letters of support to obtain funding from your home institutions.

The West Coast Metabolomics Center organizes an instructional course for researchers for researcher which need a deeper and broader understanding in the field of Metabolomics.  This course will span 12 days from August 14-25, 2017.

In order to serve the group interests best and have interesting open discussions  we have a small class of 22 participants. The participants come always from all over the world and have a very diverse research background.

The course will include:

  1. study design, including pitfall analysis and hidden biases in studies from microbial, plant, mouse and human cohort research
  2. sample preparation and quality control
  3. in-laboratory detailed discussions standard operating procedures for GC-MS and LC-MS data acquisitions
  4. targeted metabolomics, including monitoring charts and use of isotope labeled internal standards
  5. exercises on flux analysis in cancer cells by isotope tracer analysis
  6. exercises on identification of unknowns by cheminformatics software workflows (incl CFM-ID, MassFrontier, MS-Finder, CSI:FingerID and various databases and small software routines)
  7. untargeted data processing and exercises on MS-DIAL software , with comparisons to MZmine and XCMS
  8. data normalizations and transformations with and without internal standards and Quality Controls
  9. multivariate and univariate statistics (incl MetaboAnalyst and other software such as Metabox)
  10. pathway mapping (incl MetaboAnalyst and MetaMapR)

  • Past course participation:
  • 2016 course: 23 researchers from Saudi-Arabia, China, USA, Thailand, Japan, Italy, Brazil, Chile, Korea, and Canada.

For questions, please contact our program representative Jeannette Martins (jmartins@ucdavis.edu).

  • Visiting Scientists
  • Participation in this course is mandatory for visiting international researchers who want to engage in collaborative research projects.
    The minimum time span for such collaborative visits is 3 months, preferred is 12 months.
    An additional payment of $500 for the visa has to be paid prior to arrival at UC Davis.

  • Each year, up to five international researchers have started such research visits, funded by agencies in their home countries.
    Please contact us at least 6 months in advance to help you with letters of support, booking your course, and obtaining a visa for you. 

 

Cancellation policy

Requests for refunds will be honored when received 2 month prior to the program. Refund requests can be only accepted in a written form. However, another person may be substituted at any time for this program, unless it requires issuing a new travel visa for international scholars.
