Back to 'Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre' Metabolite identification with the Q Exactive and LTQ Orbitrap Browser does not support script. 2018 Course Dates: 16-17 April 2018 | 22-23 November 2018 Register Now for 16-17 April 2018 Register Now for 22-23 November 2018 This 2-day course will provide a hands-on approach to teach the attendees about the latest techniques and tools available to perform metabolite identification in non-targeted metabolomics studies. The course will be led by experts working within the fields of metabolomics and chemical analysis 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 in a session. We will apply these tools on the Q Exactive and LTQ-Orbitrap family of mass spectrometers. Topics covered: Importance of mass spectral interpretation Types of data which can be collected on the QE and LTQ-Orbitrap (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 (DDA, DIA, all-ion) MS/MS and MSn experiments for sample fractions using the LTQ-Orbitrap Mass spectral libraries (using mzCloud) Searching mass spectral libraries Tools for mass spectral interpretation Reporting standards for metabolite identification Question and answer session with the experts Cost: Early bird Registration - £755 Standard Registration - £840 NERC Bursary Registration - £0(for bursary information please visit Trainee Information) Level: The course is aimed at PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who have been actively applying metabolomics for a minimum of 6 months. If students or researchers would like to take the course but do not have the recommended level of experience please contact the course administrator for advice.
