Providing training to empower the next generation of metabolomics researchers.
The Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre provides training to the metabolomics community in both analytical and computational methods. The training centre partners with both the Phenome Centre Birmingham and the NERC Biomolecular Analysis Facility to provide vocational training courses in clinical and environmental metabolomics. We offer a combination of both face-to-face and online courses.
The Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre is directed by Dr Warwick Dunn, Professor Mark Viant, Dr Ralf Weber and Dr Catherine Winder.
Metabolite identification with the Q Exactive and LTQ Orbitrap Elite
4 - 5 April 2019
Birmingham, United KingdomMetabolite identification with the Q Exactive and LTQ Orbitrap Elite https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/facilities/metabolomics-training-centre/courses/metabolite-identification.aspx https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metabolite-identification-with-the-q-exactive-and-ltq-orbitrap 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. 2019-04-04 09:00:00 UTC 2019-04-05 00:00:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, Birmingham, United Kingdom Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Birmingham United Kingdom B15 2TT

The course will be led by experts in the field of metabolomics and include lectures, laboratory sessions and computer workshops to provide a detailed overview of the metabolomics pipeline applying the Q Exactive mass spectrometer. 2019-04-01 09:00:00 UTC 2019-04-03 00:00:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, Birmingham, United Kingdom Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Birmingham United Kingdom B15 2TT      
Multiple biofluid and tissue types, from sample preparation to analysis strategies for metabolomics
25 - 27 September 2019
Birmingham, United KingdomMultiple biofluid and tissue types, from sample preparation to analysis strategies for metabolomics https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/facilities/metabolomics-training-centre/courses/sample-analysis.aspx https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/multiple-biofluid-and-tissue-types-from-sample-preparation-to-analysis-strategies-for-metabolomics This 3-day course will provide a comprehensive theoretical overview and hands-on training for the range of methods applied for sample preparation of complex biological samples for analysis applying LC-MS analysis. The course will be led by experts in the field to illustrate the different approaches that are available to analyse a range of biological samples and apply complementary liquid chromatography approaches to maximise the coverage of the metabolome. The course will be taught by experts in metabolomics who have experience of the analysis of microbial, plant and mammalian samples. 2019-09-25 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-27 00:00:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, Birmingham, United Kingdom Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Birmingham United Kingdom B15 2TT
