W4E 2018


Processing, statistical analysis, and annotation of metabolomics data is a complex task for experimenters since it involves many steps and requires a good knowledge of both the methodology and software tools. The Workflow4metabolomics.org (W4M) online infrastructure provides a user-friendly and high-performance environment with advanced computational modules for building, running, and sharing complete workflows for LC-MS, GC-MS, and NMR analysis. Such features are of major values for teaching computational metabolomics to experimenters, and previous courses using W4M since 2014 have been very successful.

Pre-Registration are closed now !!

Goals: During this one-week course, participants will learn how to use the W4M infrastructure to analyze their own dataset. Morning sessions will be dedicated to methodology and tools. Afternoon sessions will be devoted to tutoring.

Date: Monday 8th  to Friday October 12th  2018

Costs: 900 € for academic and 2000 € for private institution to cover expenses for trainers (12), organization, materials and meals

Including : Lunch, coffee break, pedagogic support and the Thursday social event

Not included : travel expenses, accomodation and 3 diners (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)

Target audience: LC-MS, GC-MS, NMR, FIA-MS and DI-MS  experimenters (e.g. biologists, chemists).

Materials: Participants will use their laptop to perform the analysis on their W4M account. All presentations, reference datasets and workflows will be available online.

Tutors: Each participant will be paired with a tutor who will help him/her prepare the data and assist him/her during each analysis step.
