Overview

 

This course will provide an overview of key issues that affect metabolomics studies, bioinformatics tools, and procedures for the analysis of metabolomics data. It will be delivered using a mixture of lectures, computer-based practical sessions and interactive discussions. The course will provide a platform for discussion of the key questions and challenges in the field of metabolomics.

Audience

This course is aimed at PhD students and researchers with a minimum of one year’ s experience in the field of metabolomics who are seeking to improve their skills in metabolomics data analysis. Participants must have experience using R (including a basic understanding of the syntax and ability to manipulate objects) and the UNIX/LINUX operating system.

Syllabus, Tools and Resources

During this course you will learn about…

  • Metabolomics study design, workflow and sources of experimental error
  • Metabolomics data processing: R, XCMS, MetFrag, NMR tools, …
  • Metabolomics data analysis: R, Bioconductor, data fusion, univariate and multivariate data analysis, data clustering and correlation methods…
  • Metabolomics downstream analyses: MetExplore, Cytoscape plugin, metabolic pathway analysis, visualisation, differential expression, metabolomics flux.
  • Metabolomics standards and databases: data dissemination and deposition in EBI-MetaboLights, ISATools and COSMOS

Learning Objectives

After this course you should be able to…

  • Discuss major principles of metabolomics experimental design and factors that impact upon subsequent analysis
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses in a variety of metabolomics analytical approaches
  • Use a range of Bioinformatics software to pre-process, process and analyse metabolomics data
  • Discuss current trends and challenges in metabolomics
