Metabolomics Interest Group (MIG)

The 2nd meeting of the Metabolomics Interest Group was held on:
 
Monday, April 20th from 1:00 - 2:00 pm
BioSci III Conference Room, Rm 2120.
 
The MIG provides 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.
 
This month's topic was on "Metabolite Biomarker Identification" from untargeted global mass spec data collected by GC EI-MS, LC-MS or MSMS instruments.
 
We reviewed:
      • Basic untargeted metabolomics experimental designs,
      • Sample handling and data collection 
      • Various software analytical packages, including: Waters MarkerLynx and Progenesis QI packages, Scripps XCMS Online and the open source package MetaboAnalyst.

Metabolomics Interest Group (MIG)

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:
    1. Advances in methods/technologies/instrumentation - primarily MS techniques.
    2. Strategies for small molecule quantification and biomarker identification.
    3. Data processing pipelines and software for manipulation of large omic datasets.
    4. 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).
