Friend of SECIM, and metabolomics expert, Dr. Stephen Barnes, and The University of Alabama at Birmingham are hosting their 2nd Annual Workshop on Metabolomics Monday, June 2, through Thursday, June 5, 2014.

The course is jointly sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) as part of the NIH Common Fund Metabolomics Initiative, and the Departments of Chemistry and Pharmacology and Toxicology at UAB.

The themes in the second year of The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s workshop are:

  • The background in experimental design of a metabolomics experiment
  • The importance of sample stability and extraction methods
  • The analytical measuring systems (nuclear magnetic resonance and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry)
  • Targeted metabolomics
  • Untargeted metabolomics
  • Quantitative metabolomics
  • Pre-processing of analytical data
  • Statistical analysis of the data
  • Metabolite databases – integration with MSMS data
  • Metabolite pathway analysis
