February 2019


28 Feb - 1 March 2019

Introduction to Metabolomics for the Environmental Scientist

Birmingham

This two-day NERC-funded Advanced Training Short Course provides environmental scientists with an overview of the metabolomics pipeline. The course is intended for environmental scientist with little or no previous experience of metabolomics and who are interested to discover how this relatively new and powerful approach could be integrated into their research.
