Register now for 19-21 September 2018 Overview This three-day course introduces how untargeted metabolomics can be applied to study microbial systems in academic and industrial research. The course provides an overview of the metabolomics pipeline, experimental design, sample preparation and data acquisition. The course is led by experts in the field of metabolomics and will include lectures, hands-on laboratory sessions in sample preparation and data acquisition and computer workshops focused on data processing and data analysis. Topics covered Introduction to metabolomics, both targeted and untargeted approaches Experimental design and the importance of quality control samples in untargeted metabolomics Analytical strategies applied in metabolomics with a focus on mass spectrometry Hands-on laboratory sessions focused on sample preparation and to include metabolic quenching and extraction procedures, intracellular and exometabolome samples, and polar and non-polar extraction methods Hands-on laboratory sessions focused on sample analysis for untargeted metabolomics studies using an Acquity UPLC coupled to a Xevo QToF mass spectrometer Hands-on workshop focused on data processing and data analysis An introduction to metabolite identification Question and answer session with the experts Level The course is aimed at individuals with minimal experience of applying metabolomics in their research and no or limited experience of using a liquid chromatography – mass spectrometer. The attendees will leave the course understanding and being able to apply the metabolomics pipeline in their research.

Overall this was an excellent course." - Sarah Attended Introduction to Metabolomics for the Microbiologist March 2018 "Introductory lectures were very clear. The statistical lecture was also well taught and helped to clarify approaches. Elements focusing on experimental design and the offer of further help with this after the course was appreciated." - Brian Attended Introduction to Metabolomics for the Microbiologist March 2018 Cost Early-bird Registration £980 Standard Registration £1090 NERC Bursary £0 (for bursary information please visit Trainee Information) Register now for 19-21 September 2018 For further information about this course please contact David Epps.
