This two-day NERC funded Advanced Training Short Course provided a theoretical overview and hands-on training in the processing and analysis of metabolomics data. Attendees studied specific case studies from the environmental sciences, learning the step-by-step processes that are applied in the data analysis pipeline. The course was delivered using a combination of lectures and computer workshops, and time was dedicated to answering questions and discussing projects.

Topics included:

  • an overview of the data processing pipeline
  • principal component analysis, discriminant analysis and model validation
  • univariate statistical analysis
  • common misunderstandings in chemometrics and model interpretation
  • computational metabolite annotation and identification

Registration fee: bursaries were available for NERC-funded scientist.

The closing date to apply for a NERC-funded bursary for the course is 27 January 2017.
