Registration will open in February. Please visit go.osu.edu/omsms2018 for up-to-date information about the symposium and links to registration.

 

 

PhenoMeNal Gateway: Portal to metabolomics data analysis in the cloud

June 6 — 8, 2018

Tennis Court Suite, Wellcome Genome Campus - Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, CB10 1SD, United Kingdom


This course will provide an introduction to metabolomics data analysis in a cloud computing environment, based on resources developed and provided by the PhenoMeNal project. PhenoMeNal is a comprehensive and standardised e-infrastructure that supports data processing and analysis workflows for data generated by metabolomics studies. Participants will become familiar with a range of relevant open-source tools and workflows developed by PhenoMeNal. There will be a large practical component, where participants will learn through hands-on tutorials to use a workflow-based approach and compute infrastructure for data analysis and data submission, under the guidance of expert trainers and teaching assistants.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control in Metabolomics

June 7 — 8, 2018

Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK


Limited bursaries are now available for PhD students funded by NERC, which make the registration for this course FREE to these students.

This 2-day course will provide a comprehensive overview of the application of quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) in metabolic phenotyping. The course is aimed at students and researchers who are actively working in the field. Experts who have developed the application of QA and QC procedures within the field will lead the course. It will include both theoretical and practical components to:

  • Introduce QA and QC in metabolic phenotyping
  • The application of QA and QC in untargeted and targeted studies
  • Preparation of QCs and data acquisition
  • Data processing and reporting standards

The course will finish with a question and answer session with a panel of experts.

MOVISS “Mountain Village Science Series”

September 9 — 12, 2018

Voreau near Vienna, Austria


Following the success of the first MOVISS “Mountain Village Science Series” Bio&Data, we would like to invite you to be a part of making the second even better!

The workshop/meeting will take place on 9th to 12th of September 2018 in Voreau near Vienna, Austria. We want to combine hiking with a nice meeting full of discussions and interaction as well as a good location in mountains.

http://www.moviss.eu

MOVISS is different to the usual conferences. It is designed as a small, problem-driven meeting, full of discussions and questions about how to deal with metabolomics data reasonably. In this way, we hope to constructively engage some of the greatest minds collaboratively on solving some of the challenges of the metabolomics and bioinformatics community.

The scientific topics this year are:

  • Shiny design: What is important when designing experiments?
  • Misty mountains: How to find peaks hidden in mists? What is a real peak?
  • Mountain safety: awareness of strengths and weakness of statistical tools
  • Home run: Results Interpretation – Be creative, critical and think next?

Key dates for your diary:
Feb 1, Opening registration and abstracts
Apr 30, Deadline for abstracts
May 15, Acceptance of abstracts
May 30, Early registration fee payment
Jul 31, Standard registration fee payment

 

 

The Metabolism of Infectious Diseases

June 12 — 15, 2018

Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado


Symposium Rationale and Objectives 
The wealth of transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics data generated for a wide range of infectious diseases reveal that small molecule metabolism is an integral part of disease progression. This includes manipulation of host metabolic processes by pathogens; pathogen metabolic adaptation to the hosts’ environments; and interspecies communication and signaling via small molecules; as well as the emergence of immunometabolism as a key aspect of host responses that lead to protection or pathogenesis.

Specific topics that will be addressed:

  • The role of immunometabolism in infectious diseases
  • Pathogen and host interactions leading to adaptation of metabolic states and processes
  • Communication and signaling via small molecule metabolites
  • Emerging technologies and translation

Abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations https://metabolism.idrtalks.colostate.edu.
