Processing, statistical analysis, and annotation of metabolomics data is a complex task for experimenters since it involves many steps and requires a good knowledge of both the methodology and software tools. The Workflow4metabolomics.org (W4M) online infrastructure provides a user-friendly and high-performance environment with advanced computational modules for building, running, and sharing complete workflows for LC-MS, GC-MS, and NMR analysis (Giacomoni et al, 2015). Such functionalities are of major values for teaching computational metabolomics to experimenters, and previous courses using W4M since 2014 have been very successful (with an average number of participants of 25).
Goals: During this one-week course, participants will learn how to use the W4M infrastructure to analyze their own dataset. Morning sessions will be dedicated to methodology and tools. Afternoon sessions will be devoted to tutoring.
Date: Monday May 29th 2017 to Friday June 2nd 2017
Costs: 800 € for academic and 2000 € for private institution to cover expenses for trainers (12), organization, materials and meals
Including : Lunch, coffee break, pedagogic support and the Thursday social event
Not included : travel expenses, accomodation and 3 diners (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)
Target audience: LC-MS, GC-MS and NMR experimenters (e.g. biologists, chemists).
Materials: Participants will use their laptop to perform the analysis on their W4M account. All presentations, reference datasets and workflows will be available online.
Tutors: Each participant will be paired with a tutor who will help him/her prepare the data and assist him/her during each analysis step.
Number of attendees: 25 max.
Keynote speakers: Tim Ebbels (Imperial College), Steffen Neumann (IPB Halle) and Ralf Weber (Birmingham University).
