Scientific topic: Metabolomics

Target audience:
  • Scientists
  • PhD students
  • Master students
  • Undergraduate students
Description:

Metabolomics is an emerging field that aims to measure the complement of metabolites (the metabolome) in living organisms. The metabolome represents the downstream effect of an organism’s genome and its interaction with the environment. Metabolomics has a wide application area across the medical and biological sciences. The course provides an introduction to metabolomics, describes the tools and techniques we use to study the metabolome and explains why we want to study it. By the end of the course you will understand how metabolomics can revolutionise our understanding of metabolism.

This course is designed as a 4-week course and the Educators will support discussions and learning in weeks 1 to 4 responding to questions and comments. The course will remain open for 12 weeks in total; if you join the course after week 5 we encourage you to read posts / comments on the platform to aid your learning. The Educators will answer comments and questions at a lower frequency in weeks 5 to 12.
