PhD course “Introduction to Nutritional Metabolomics”
The course will provide an overview on LC-MS based untargeted metabolomics and its application in nutrition. It will be delivered using a mixture of lectures, hands-on data preparation and analysis, computer-based practical sessions, and discussions. Visits to wet labs and instructions on human sample preparation procedures is included but with minimal hands-on.
The students will go through common steps in a typical metabolomics study using a real-life case. This case study includes collected plasma (or urine) samples from a nutritional intervention. The sample preparation and analysis on UPLC-QTOF has been conducted and the students will further process and analyse the acquired data with various free-ware tools (MZmine, Workflow4Metabolomics and Metaboanalyst). They will finally work on identification of relevant metabolites using several web-based structure elucidation tools. The course will finalize by presentations of reports generated by the students based on the case study.
