http://symposium.psu.edu

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).
