Workshop on metabolomics data processing





Invitation to

Workshop on metabolomics data processing

September 2, 2015 Steno Diabetes Center, Gentofte, Denmark

Modern analytical technologies afford comprehensive and quantitative investigation of a multitude of different metabolites. Typical metabolomic experiments can therefore produce large amounts of data. Handling such complex datasets is an important step that has big impact on extent and quality at which the metabolite identification and quantification can be made, and thus on the ultimate biological interpretation of the results. Increasing interest in metabolomics thus led to resurgence of interest in related data processing. The aim of the workshop is to introduce and discuss (1) state-of-the-art tools for metabolomics data processing, (2) emerging standards related to data exchange and software development tools, and (3) the key challenges in this field. A hands-on workshop on the use of the popular open source package MZmine will also be given by the current developers of the software. This workshop is motivated by the visit of Tomaš Pluskal at Steno Diabetes Center during the month of September, prior to his move to Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, MA. During his visit at Steno, Tomaš will focus on the completion of the next major version of the MZmine software. The workshop is supported by EU project COSMOS (COordination of Standards in MetabOlomicS).
