Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Metabolomics is a modern and developing science complementing genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics as well as the analysis of complex mixtures such as food. Student will know the principles of most used methods in metabolomics – NMR spectroscopy including in vivo, and mass spectrometry with chromatography separation. He/she will know how to use it studying endo- and exo-metabolome with their respective advantages and disadvantages. The graduates will also know how to evaluate data using multivariate statistical methods.
Course contents:
1.The introduction to metabolomics.
2.NMR spectroscopy. Basic principles. NMR spectrometer. Chemical shift. Spin interactions. Relaxation.
3.Measuring NMR spectra. Sample preparation. Instrument setup. Measurement parameters. Advanced NMR methods.
4.Spectral processing methods. Binning. Metabolite quantitation.
5.In vivo MRS. Animal models. Localization. Advanced MRS methods.
6.GC-MS. Principles. Sample preparation. Derivatization. Measurement. Evaluation.
7.LC-MS. Principles. Differences to GC-MS. Practical use.
8.Statistical evaluation of metabolomic data – data reduction, data filtering, normalization, PCA, PLS-DA
