Course Overview

This 2-day course provides a hands-on approach to teach attendees about the latest techniques and tools available to perform metabolite identification in non-targeted metabolomics studies. The course is led by experts working within the field of metabolomics, and will include a significant proportion of hands-on experience of using mass spectrometers, software tools and databases. A maximum of four people will be working on each mass spectrometer (Q Exactive and LTQ-Orbitrap Elite) in a session.

Topics Covered

  • Importance of mass spectral interpretation
  • Types of data which can be collected on the QE and LTQ-Orbitrap Elite (m/z, retention time, MS/MS, MSn)
  • Conversion of raw data to molecular formula and putative metabolite annotations
  • MS/MS experiments in metabolic phenotyping for on-line data acquisition using the QE (Data Dependent Analysis, Data Independent Analysis)
  • MS/MS and MSn experiments for sample fractions using the LTQ-Orbitrap Elite
  • Mass spectral libraries (using mzCloud)
  • Searching mass spectral libraries
  • Tools for mass spectral interpretation
  • In silico fragmentation (using MassFrontier)
  • Reporting standards for metabolite identification
  • Question and answer session with the experts

"I enjoyed the practical part very much. "Learning by doing" is first of all very effective but the whole session was also a great opportunity to ask about some more specific practical parts of the metabolomics approach."
Rikke

"I enjoyed how hands on everything was - and how it was geared specifically towards the questions we had on our own research... Overall I thought it was excellent and I learned a ton."
Rachel

"The practical part was great and very dynamic. It was the first experience I had ever had and it resulted in a very promising contact with the new field."
