10th International Metabolomics Workshop

10th International Metabolomics Workshop

Basics and Applications to Plant Sciences

Why metabolomics

Metabolomics is “systematic study of the unique chemical fingerprints that specific cellular processes leave behind” (Bennet, 2005). Recently, metabolomics become an important tool in life sciences. Whether in plant, man, bacteria or yeast, metabolomics focuses on metabolic pathways and processes, as well as on specific compounds and relate them to growth, development, stress, disease, environmental changes ect. Metabolomics plays an important role nowadays e.g. in studies of plant interactions with other plants, insects and diseases or in quality control of food or medicine. 
Metabolomics is indispensable technique in modern system biology and we are delighted to bring experts together in this special workshop.

When

May 1 - 5, 2017, workshop
May 8 - 12, 2017, hands-on (optional)
May 15 - 19, 2017, wrapping up of workshop and hands on (optional)

Topics include

  • Primary and Secondary Metabolism in Plants
  • Analytical Techniques: Chromatography, MS, NMR
  • Statistics - Basics of Multivariate Data Analysis
  • Applications in Plant Sciences

Who should apply

The workshop targets researchers experienced in the isolation and identification of natural products who have not yet had experience with metabolomics. While it is popular among PhD students, any professionals who would like to learn about metabolomics are welcome. It is not necessary to have a plant science background to register for this course.

What you will gain

The goal of the workshop is to introduce the concept of systems biology and its tools of observation to motivated professionals and spark their enthusiasm with interesting field studies and applications. We believe our workshop provides a sound base and platform for taking off into the metabolomics world. 

Registration fee

The workshop fee of 850 Euros includes an electronic handout (on USB), lunches (May 1-5), coffee-breaks and one workshop dinner. Printed version of the handout, a binder with lectures, could arranged at a fee (100 Euros).
