Course Description

Metabolomics is an emerging field of the Life Sciences arena and has widespread applications across the medical, clinical and biological sciences, both in academic and industrial settings. Metabolomics aims to measure the complement of metabolites (the intermediates and final products of metabolism) in living organisms and the environment. The total set of metabolites in a biological system is known as the metabolome and represents the downstream effect of an organism’s genome and its interaction with the environment. This workshop is aimed to introduce metabolomics and describe the current challenges and limits in analyzing metabolites in a biological system. The following topics will be presented and discussed:

  1. Analytical theory and workflow of ultra-high pressure liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry for metabolite measurements.
  2. Biological sample preparation in different metabolomics applications.
  3. Metabolomics data production and interpretation: metabolite identification and comprehensive data set of metabolites.
  4. Integration of metabolomics data with genomics and/or proteomics data.


Basic knowledge of biology and/or biochemistry.
