EMBO Practical Course: “Metabolomics Bioinformatics in Human Health”

16-20 September 2019
Lyon, France

Alpesh Thakker, Postdoctoral researcher Lipidomics, University of the Highlands and Islands, UK

“We live in Information Age and the early career researchers in today’s era are expected to deal with information overload and extract out knowledge out of it. This course equips one with learning tools that can facilitate knowledge creation and extraction.I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and considering the fact that organising such practical courses require substantial efforts and funding, this one goes beyond expectations. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend this.”

Ambily Sivadas, Postdoctoral fellow, St. John’s Research Institute, India

“This is an intensive practical workshop for learning some of the intricate aspects of metabolomics data analysis covering a broad range of topics. This course has provided a great kickstart for establishing a robust metabolomics workflow in my lab. The course was very well organized and the speakers were phenomenal.”

Miguel Fernández García, PhD Student, CEMBIO – Center for Metabolomics and Bioanalysis of San Pablo-CEU university, Spain

“My experience at this course has been wonderful and exceeded my previous expectations. It has been an amazing opportunity to learn from world recognized experts in the field all the distinct aspects that are covered by computational metabolomics. It undoubtedly provides both a panoramic and detailed view of this importantly consolidating discipline, as well as providing the metabolomics scientist with a set of open-source, powerful tools. It is also remarkable the warm atmosphere that dominates the whole event, which arises from a combination of a high interaction between the different participants with very diverse backgrounds, in a space which is optimal in terms of organization and installations. 100% recommendable!”

Giovanny Rodriguez Blanco, SSO Metabolomics, CRUK Beatson Institute, UK

“The course was intense and extremely useful for people working in the metabolomics field. It covered from experimental design up to statistical analysis and modelling. Besides, many technological aspects to be considered when dealing with metabolomics experiments were easily explained. Finally, posters sessions as well as lunch&coffee breaks allowed us to nicely interact with speakers/trainees as well as the other attendees. Highly recommended course in a fab location!”
