Metabolomics Data Processing and Data Analysis Online Course
February 20 - March 17, 2017
An online course by the Birmingham Metabolomics Training Center, University of Birmingham, UK hosted by Futurelearn
This four-week online course will explore the tools and approaches that are used to process and analyse metabolomics data, we will investigate the challenges that are typically encountered in the analysis of metabolomics data and provide solutions to overcome these problems. The course will be delivered using a combination of short videos, articles, discussions, and online workshops with step-by-step instructions and test data sets. We will provide quizzes, polls and peer review exercises each week, so that you can review your learning throughout the course. The material will be delivered over a four week period, with an estimated learning time of four hours per week. If you do not have time to complete the course during the 4-week period you will retain access to the course material to revisit, as you are able.
Registration fee: Early-bird £200, Standard £220
Hands-on LC-MS for Metabolic Phenotyping
March 13 - 17, 2017
Imperial College London, South Kensington, London, UK
This week long course aims to cover how to perform a metabolic profiling experiment, from start to finish. It covers study design, sample preparation, the use of mass spectrometry for global profiling and targeted methodologies and data analysis.
It combines lectures and tutorial sessions to ensure a thorough understanding of the theory and practical applications. Topics covered include:
- Targeted and untargeted sample preparation
- Targeted and untargeted data analysis
- Statistics and OPLS
Metabolism and Metabolomics: Disease Models and Model Organisms
May 10 - 12, 2017
The Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences at the Pennsylvania State University Park Campus
Details are as follows:
The 2017 Penn State Summer Symposium in Molecular Biology is titled Metabolism and Metabolomics: Disease Models and Model Organisms. The symposium will assemble prominent researchers interested in metabolism and leading investigators using and developing technology for analysis of metabolomes. Esteemed investigators will communicate the latest findings in diverse areas of metabolic biology including energetics, obesity, aging, effects of metabolic perturbations in cancer and other disease, as well as neural control of metabolism. Investigators renowned for their contributions to technology development for analysis of metabolomes and metabolic flux will also present. The 2017 Symposium will bring together top names in the field, and will thereby provide access to some outstanding lectures. The Symposium is open to members of the academic, biomedical, and pharmaceutical communities.

Workflow4Experimenters 2017: International Course on Galaxy Workflows for Metabolomics
May 29 - June 2, 2017
Paris (Pasteur Institute)
Overview: Processing, statistical analysis, and annotation of metabolomics data is a complex task for experimenters since it involves many steps and requires a good knowledge of both the methodology and software tools. The Workflow4metabolomics.org (W4M) online infrastructure provides a user-friendly and high-performance environment with advanced computational modules for building, running, and sharing complete workflows for LC-MS, GC-MS, and NMR analysis (Giacomoni et al, 2015).
Objectives: During this one-week course, participants will learn how to use the W4M infrastructure to analyze their own dataset. Morning sessions will be dedicated to methodology and tools. Afternoon sessions will be devoted to tutoring. Each participant will be paired with a tutor who will help him/her prepare the data and assist him/her during each analysis step.
Target audience: LC-MS, GC-MS and NMR experimenters (e.g. biologists, chemists).
September 25 - 27, 2017
Announcing MOVISS: Bio and Data
A problem driven meeting aimed at bioinformaticians, biochemists, statisticians and those who handle and interpret metabolomics data
When: Sept 25th-27th 2017
Where: Vorau, Austria
Not just an ordinary conference, where people present work they have already done, MOVISS is centered on identifying and problem solving current challenges relating to metabolomics data handling by getting everyone in the room discussing it. Want to be at the forefront of solving some of the major bottlenecks in the Metabolomics Revolution – see you at MOVISS!
