Upcoming Talks and Events

Events on January 14, 2019
WCMC: Hands-on LC-MS Data processing and Statistics
Starts: 12:00 am
Ends: January 19, 2019 - 12:00 am
Location: UC Davis Conference Center, 550 Alumni Ln, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Description: Registration: http://ucanr.edu/survey/survey.cfm?surveynumber=15575

This course will feature hands-on training with real-world metabolomics data covering LC/MS compound identification, data processing, statistical analysis, network mapping and data interpretation.

We will instruct using a variety of software, workflows, and algorithms but also give theoretical background information and overviews. We will focus on utilizing open source software and only refer to commercial or vendor software when necessary.

All participants will be trained on laptops that were specifically purchased for course training, with all software already installed and data available to use.

The course will include:

untargeted data processing and exercises on MS-DIAL software (in comparison to XCMS)
exercises on identification of unknowns by cheminformatics software workflows (incl MS-FINDER, CFM-ID, and various databases and small software routines)
data normalization and transformation with and without internal standards and quality controls
multivariate and univariate statistics (incl MetDA in comparison to MetaboAnalyst)
pathway mapping (incl MetaBox consisting of MetDA, ChemRICH and MetaMapp in comparison to MetaboAnalyst)
The course fees are $ 2,500 per participant to cover expenses for instructors, organization, materials and meals.

Cancellation policy
Requests for refunds will be honored when received 2 month prior to the program. Refund requests can be only accepted in a written form. However, another person may be substituted at any time for this program, unless it requires issuing a new travel visa for international scholars.

A $150 administrative fee and the credit card fee will be deducted for cancellations.
In the unlikely event that this program is cancelled or postponed due to insufficient enrollments or unforeseen circumstances, the WCMC will fully refund registration fees but cannot be held responsible for any other expenses, including cancellation or change charges assessed by airlines, hotels, travel agencies, or other organizations.
Events on May 16, 2019
WCMC: Best practice in operating mass spectrometers in Metabolomics
Starts: 12:00 am
Ends: May 20, 2019 - 12:00 am
Location: Genome and Biomedical Sciences Facility, 451 Health Science Dr, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Description: Registration: https://goo.gl/forms/TGeuALrTMfTpGh0O2

This course will enhance your standing and expertise to prepare and successfully run samples in a metabolomic laboratory. It is designed to provide hands-on practical exercises using gas and liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS & LC-MS). The course will focus on untargeted data acquisition in metabolomics with both nominal mass and accurate mass instruments. You will learn how to operate the instruments, how to collect metabolite profiles on complex samples and how to prepare and derivatize samples, troubleshoot instruments, acquire data and perform data quality control routines (QA/QC). Overall, you will receive comprehensive understanding of the current best practices in the metabolomics laboratory.

The course will include:


1. Fundamentals of mass spectrometry, chromatography, and metabolomics.
2. hands-on exercises on sample preparation, including extraction and derivatization
of complex samples for untargeted metabolomics profiling
3. Hands-on exercises to learn how to operate both gas and liquid chromatography
coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS & LC-MS).
4. quality control routines (QA/QC) in order to ensure comparable data, reproducibility, and instrument performance.
Events on August 19, 2019
International Summer Sessions in Metabolomics
Starts: 12:00 am
Ends: August 31, 2019 - 12:00 am
Location: UC Davis Alumni Center
Description: Registration: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeVnMXxhkMtlET-RGDgW99jA3lr1wS4hypU0kI6O1yGV0GqBg/viewform?usp=sf_link

Please, contact us now if you need letters of support to obtain funding from your home institutions.

The West Coast Metabolomics Center organizes an instructional course for researchers for researcher which need a deeper and broader understanding in the field of Metabolomics. This course will span 12 days from August 19-30, 2019.

In order to serve the group interests best and have interesting open discussions we have a small class of 22 participants. The participants come always from all over the world and have a very diverse research background.

The course will include:

study design, including pitfall analysis and hidden biases in studies from microbial, plant, mouse and human cohort research
sample preparation and quality control
in-laboratory detailed discussions standard operating procedures for GC-MS and LC-MS data acquisitions
targeted metabolomics, including monitoring charts and use of isotope labeled internal standards
exercises on flux analysis in cancer cells by isotope tracer analysis
untargeted data processing and exercises on MS-DIAL software (in comparison to XCMS)
exercises on identification of unknowns by cheminformatics software workflows (incl MS-FINDER, CFM-ID, and various databases and small software routines)
data normalization and transformation with and without internal standards and quality controls
multivariate and univariate statistics (incl MetDA in comparison to MetaboAnalyst)
pathway mapping (incl MetaBox consisting of MetDA, ChemRICH and MetaMapp in comparison to MetaboAnalyst)
