SMS Workshop – Untargeted metabolomic data processing and analysis
“From raw data to peak tables and beyond”
November 5, 2019, Insel Spital Bern
This workshop is open for advanced students and scientists who are familiar with the basics of metabolomic technologies and the use of R scripts. The workshop starts with an introduction to metabolomic data analysis and an overview of R packages relevant for metabolomics and lipidomics. The conversion of proprietary raw data formats to open exchange raw data formats will be discussed too. The introduction lecture will be followed by hands-on sessions on the use of two R packages: MetaboAnalystR 2.0 and cosmiq. The participants will process different types of raw data into peak tables (LC-MS, DI/FI-MS and IMS-MS data raw data sets). In a final hands-on session the participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice the proper use of MetaboAnalyst tools for normalization, transformation and analysis of peak data tables.
The detailedprogram is available here.
We will accept a limited number of participants who deliver a short motivation letter by e-mail to email@example.com latest by the 15th of October 2019.
The course is free for SMS members.
