Description

THE COURSE HAS BEEN POSTPONED.

THE NEW DATES WILL BE ANNOUNCED LATER DURING THE YEAR.

 

 

This course will provide the participants with the basic concepts on analytics and metabolomics. The course is theoretical and practical.

 

Mornings: 3 days x 3 hrs lecture "Introduction to analytics and metabolomics". The following topics will be approached:
- Principles of separation - Liquid and gas chromatography
- Principles of detection – Overview of 4 different detectors (DAD, FLD, MS, FID)
- Principles of quantification

 

Afternoons: 3 days x 4 hrs practical work with the analytical instruments:
- Fatty acid methyl ester analysis by gas chromatography/flame ionization detector
- Tocochromanol analysis by high-performance liquid chromatography/fluorescence
- Data analysis and reporting

 

Participants are invited to bring vegetable oil that they consumed (0.5 mL in an Eppendorf).
They will be analyzed during the practical part to illustrate the concepts developed during the three seminars.

Information

The course is organized in collaboration with the Doctoral Program in Organismal Biology of Neuchâtel (DP-Biol).

 

The course is divided in a theoretical part (mornings) and a practical part (afternoons).Due to limitations in the space for the practical part, there are 12 places for students attending the theoretical and practical part.Another extra 8 places are available for students who wish to join the theoretical part only.

 

Course location: To be confirmed
