Metabolomics 101 - From Experimental Design and Sample Preparation to Data Quality, Data Standards and Data Sharing Overall goals

This Workshop is organized by COSMOS and the Data Standards Task Group of the Metabolomics Society presenting during the annual Metabolomics Society conference in San Francisco June 2015

Join is our workshop:

In part 1, participants will learn the key concepts in establishing a metabolomics study, and how to design and complete a successful experiment. Part 2 will provide an overview of current practices, and educate new and experienced metabolomics researchers in the requirements for quality assurance and quality control. Part 3 will educate researchers in metabolomics data sharing, data standards, and data exchange Target audience: This is a ‘General Practices’ theme aimed at beginners starting in the metabolomics field, graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, principle investigators, and new investigators. Attendees will learn about experimental design, sample preparation, and metabolomics data sharing and standards.
