Using high-throughput technologies, life science researchers can identify and characterize all the small molecules or metabolites in a given cell, tissue, or organism. The CBW course covers many topics ranging from understanding metabolomics technologies, data collection and analysis, using pathway databases, performing pathway analysis, conducting univariate and multivariate statistics, working with metabolomic databases, and exploring chemical databases. Hands-on practical tutorials using various data sets and tools will assist participants in learning metabolomics analysis techniques. This is a distributed workshop. It is held simultaneously at two locations, with faculty and TAs present at both venues. Lectures are broadcast back and forth between sites. When applying, please choose the location where you would like to attend. For the Edmonton location of this workshop, click here.

You will require your own laptop computer. Minimum requirements: 1024×768 screen resolution, 2.4GHz CPU, 8GB RAM, 100GB free disk space, recent versions of Windows, Mac OS X or Linux (Most computers purchased in the past 3-4 years likely meet these requirements).  This workshop requires participants to complete pre-workshop tasks and readings.

Learning objectives:

Participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to: Design appropriate metabolome-focused experiments Understand the advantages and limitations of metabolomic data analysis Devise an appropriate bioinformatics workflow for processing and analyzing metabolomic data Apply appropriate statistics to undertake rigorous data analysis Visualize datasets to gain intuitive insights into the composition and/or activity of their metabolome
