Metabolomics: Understanding Metabolism in the 21st Century
14 September - 4 December 2020Metabolomics: Understanding Metabolism in the 21st Century https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/facilities/metabolomics-training-centre/courses/2020/Metabolomics-MOOC.aspx https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metabolomics-understanding-metabolism-in-the-21st-century-9e853a8f-6a6f-40e7-9854-021aa2c07370 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. 2020-09-14 09:00:00 UTC 2020-12-04 23:59:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Metabolomics University of Birmingham email@example.com  ScientistsPhD studentsMaster studentsUndergraduate students workshops_and_courses  Metabolomics
Quality Assurance and Quality Control in Metabolomics
30 November - 18 December 2020Quality Assurance and Quality Control in Metabolomics https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/facilities/metabolomics-training-centre/courses/2020/Quality-Control-and-Quality-Assurance-in-Metabolomics.aspx https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/quality-assurance-and-quality-control-in-metabolomics-fc8eb4e0-eaca-4a9a-8c76-1f3bf559d9a1 The application of quality assurance and quality control in the metabolomics field is vital to ensure the collection of high quality data. In this course you will explore the importance of quality assurance and quality control in both untargeted and targeted metabolomics studies. We will explain the difference between quality control and quality assurance and how to apply in your studies and laboratories. You will evaluate the types of quality control samples that can be applied in metabolomics, what is the most appropriate quality control sample to use in your research, and how to apply the data in your quality assurance procedure to produce robust and reproducible data. The materials in this course are delivered via the FutureLearn platform over a three week period, with an estimated learning time of four hours per week. Each week you will work through a number of steps to complete the learning material. A step may include a short video, an article, an exercise with step-by-step instructions, a discussion to interact with your peer and a selection of quizzes, tests and polls to self-assess your own learning. All of the course material is uploaded to the FutureLearn platform so that you can complete the steps at a convenient time for you. We (the educators) support your learning via social discussions where you will be able post questions and comments to the team of educators and the other learners on the course throughout the three weeks. In the final week of the course we will record a summary video where we will respond to questions posted by you during the course. If you do not have time to complete the course during the 3-week period you will retain access to the course material to revisit, as you are able. 2020-11-30 09:00:00 UTC 2020-12-18 23:59:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Metabolomics University of Birmingham  ScientistsPhD studentsMasters students meetings_and_conferencesworkshops_and_courses  MetabolomicsQuality AssuranceQuality Control
