Introductory Course in Metabolomics

Metabolomics is the scientific study of chemical processes involving metabolites. It is based on the systematic study of the “chemical print” that a biological system leaves after a specific metabolic process, which allows us to study the “metabolome” or “metabolic profile”. Metabolomics has been developed during the last century together with the other OmicSciences. Genomics, Transcriptomics, Proteomics and Metabolomics make up the “Omic Sciences”,due to them having the same purpose in their respective fields. The course will take place in English.

Nowadays, one of the main challenges in Systems Biology is to integrate knowledge from all Omic Sciences, but it is not viable yet. From ASBTEC we put special interest in Metabolomics, due to the fact that it represents the closest relation between individual phenotype and gene expression.

This introductory course aims to be a reviewof the world of Omic Sciences and its impact on scientific knowledg, with major emphasis on Metabolomics. The aims of these courses are:

  • To provide high quality training about omics, especially metabolomics in relation to their applications in investigation.
  • To implement the knowledge acquired of the use of machinery and software used in these fields.
  • To promote interest in metabolomics and spread information about it to “bio” students and professionals.

From ASBTEC we commit to continuous formation, this time together with the european project Biotech Lifelong Learning Network (YEBN), in which the Spanish Federation of Biotechnologists and the Associazione Nazionale Biotecnolog Italiani (ANBI) work together.

A certificate of attendance issued by ASBTEC at the end of the course will be delivered.
