Short description of the course: This short course will focus on how to perform fine tuned curation of processed LC-MS/MS data generated through MS-DIAL including compound identification, data quality analysis, and unknown feature reduction. Data from rat blood plasma analyzed using LC-MS/MS with MS/MS data collected in a data-dependent manner will be used to generate an example dataset, but the methods and techniques are applicable to many different sample types.

More information: UC Davis offers 1-week and 2-week intensive courses in Metabolomics, but many researchers cannot contribute so much time! We therefore offer 'Bits and Bites' of some of our most popular parts of our intensive courses, see below. We hope to see you there! 

This 6-part short course series will feature in-depth topics in untargeted metabolomics such as pathway-based interpretation, Bayesian statistics, and a deeper look into MS-DIAL version 4.0. Each short course can be taken individually or you can select multiple Bites. Participants will gain a deeper insight into current software, methods, and pitfalls. Each session starts promptly at 9 a.m. (Pacific Time) and will take approx. 4 hours. The courses will be conducted in highly interactive manner, with use of freely available software and databases.  The tuition is $150 per Bite. We do offer a discounted price when you take 5 Bites for $700 or 6 Bites for $800.
