Short description of the course: Investigating associations between metabolites and phenotypes is becoming increasingly important in the field.  This short course will teach researchers the basics of conducting and interpreting correlation and linear regression, before covering more advanced topics such as partial correlation, multiple regression, and mediation.

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.
