MATRIX Basecamp 2022

Comprehensive exploration of lipidomic and metabolomic mass spectrometry methods for the study of metabolism from the “ground-up.” Students will learn how to extract biological samples, operate a mass spectrometer, analyze raw data, identify lipids and metabolites within these datasets, and perform univariate, multivariate, supervised and unsupervised learning analysis in R. Students will be instructed in skills relevant to research project design (e.g., selection of research models), methodology, and the rigorous interpretation of results necessary to ensure accurate lipidomic/metabolomic results. Students will be introduced to approaches for the analysis of large data sets (e.g., from lipidomics, metabolomics), with an emphasis on the skills required for quantitative lipid assessment.
