OMICS Education Session – 1:30 – 4:30 pm
Metabolomics is the study of the complement of metabolites, lipids or other small molecule chemical species that are the result of specific cellular processes within a cell, tissue, organ, or organism. The metabolome changes constantly and is also affected by drugs, environmental chemicals, foods and beverages to which we are exposed. Thus, metabolomics and lipidomics studies can allow a more comprehensive view of a biological system by highlighting dynamic changes of important small molecules and by-products. AB SCIEX offers two powerful approaches to metabolomics with unique instrumentation and software solutions: non-targeted analysis with the TripleTOF™ systems and targeted metabolite quantitation with QTRAP® systems. These strategies will be discussed in biological experimentation and context.
Session 1 – Advancements in Accurate Mass Technology for Systems Biology Research – 30 min
Session 2 – Data Processing Strategies for Global Metabolomics Profiling and Metabolite Quantitation – 45 min
Session 3 – iTRAQ analysis reveals key invasion-related proteins in GBM – 45 min
Cost – Complimentary – Sponsored by AB Sciex – Registration required
