BITS Courses TRAINING AT VIB

Goal

After this training you will be able to perform independently a comparitieve analysis of raw metabolome data.

Summary

This training will focus on the processing of raw data obtained via either Gas Chromatography- (GC) or Liquid Chromatography- (LC) mass spectrometry (MS). In addition, based on the comparative analysis between two sample sets (e.g. control vs treatment), the subsequent identification of differential metabolites will be introduced. Afterwards, the trainee should be able to perform independently a comparative analysis of raw metabolome data and to pinpoint the well-known metabolites in the chromatogram.

Prerequisites

This training is intended for people who have a basic knowledge of R. Participants who have never worked with R should first follow the course Basic statistics in R.

Schedule

The morning session will handle differences affecting data handling between GC-MS and LC-MS. Hands-on experience with the R-based processing tools is reserved for the afternoon session.
