Description

Metabolomics has become an important metabolic profiling tool in life sciences, including studies of metabolic profiling, functional genomics, uncovering biological and physiological phenomenon in chemistry, and interaction between organisms. This course will cover basic natural product chemistry, analytical platforms for metabolomics (NMR, Chromatography, Mass Spectrometry), data interpretation with Multivariate Data Analysis, and example of application of metabolomics to life science.

Learning goals

Course objectives: This course aims at providing broad knowledge on the metabolomics. Participants are expected to learn about basic biosynthesis of natural products, analytical chemistry of natural products using chromatography and spectroscopy, and data mining with a series of multivariate data analysis.

Final qualifications: Participants understand the goal of metabolomics in life science, basic concept of analytical platforms (chromatography, Mass spectrometry, and NMR) currently used for metabolomics. Also, they will understand the basics of multivariate data analysis to interpret analytical data.

Timetable

1 week for theory, 1 week for practice, 1 week for wrap-up course for structure elucidation, 1 week for self-study, exam.
4 April 2022 until 22 Apr 2022

Remarks

This course is a part of an international workshop (Metabolomics Workshop) organized by Y.H. Choi and R. Verpoorte since 2008. The participants will join together with international participants. For the lectures of metabolomics, 8-10 international guest lecturers will be invited. There is limitation of place for the students of Leiden University (ca. 10 places are available). The course will take place in Pieterskerkhof 6, Leiden (for lectures in the first week) but some lectures can be online. Practice will be Sylvius building.
