A new interest group focused on "Metabolomics" will meet monthly. The MIG is intended as an informal venue for both current research groups, as well as new users, to i) more effectively utilize campus metabolomics resources, ii) obtain user support and provide community feedback, and iii) promote opportunities for collaborative interactions.
The aims of the Metabolomics Interest Group will be to cover:
- Advances in methods/technologies/instrumentation - primarily MS techniques.
- Strategies for small molecule quantification and biomarker identification.
- Data processing pipelines and software for manipulation of large omic datasets.
- Basic training for open access instruments in the UCI Mass Spectrometry Core Facility.
The meetings will be a mix of journal club format, short presentations on specific topics and training opportunities.
Our first meeting will be on Monday, Feb 23 @ 1:00 - 2:00 pm, in BioSci III, Rm 2120 (conference room).
Monday's topic: Targeted analyte quantitation by UPLC-MS/MS.
Demonstration: MS Core Facility, Waters Quattro Premier XE (triple quadropole MS).
