Instructor: Dr. Jacob Folz, ETH Zurich
Required software: MS-DIAL for Windows. Versions of the tool to be used will be announced closer to the course date.
Participant prerequisites: Basic understanding of LC-MS and understanding of how MS/MS spectra are used in metabolite identification.
Short description of the course: Back by popular demand, 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.
