Teaching at Friedrich-Schiller-University, Jena

At the University of Jena, we have been giving and organising the following lectures, courses and seminars. Additional Information can be found on the pages linked here

External training courses

As associate members of the German Network for Bioinformatics (Deutsches Netzwerk für Bioinformatik, de.NBI) we are offering services and training related to our expertises. Our training courses can be composed of components from existing courses listed below.

EMBO Course for Computational Metabolomics

We co-organised the 1-week EMBO course for computational metabolomics the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) four consecutive times since 2014. This course includes lectures and practical sessions led by internationally renowned researchers, and covers:

  • Experimental design
  • Untargeted Metabolomics
  • Metabolomics Standards
  • LC-MS
  • Data Processing and Feature Detection
  • Metabolite Identification
  • NMR Workflows for Metabolomics
  • Metabolomics and Metabolic Networks
  • Simple and Multivariate Statistics
  • Computational Workflows with Galaxy
  • Fluxomics
  • Introduction to Data Deposition in MetaboLights

CloudMet Summer School on Cloud-Based Metabolomics Data Analysis and Collaboration

With our colleagues at CRS4 in Sardinia and the PhenoMeNal project we organised the CloudMet summer school on cloud-based metabolomics data analysis and collaboration

Participants will learn about:

  • Tools and techniques to solve computational metabolomics problems
  • Standard data processing tools;
    • statistical data analysis;
    • metabolic network analysis
  • How to assemble tools into your own workflows
  • Galaxy for metabolomics;
    • main data formats;
    • understanding well-known workflows
  • How to share your results and data with the research community
  • Reproducibility and sharing of analyses and results;
    • MetaboLights;
    • Workflow4Metabolomics
  • Using the cloud to perform these tasks
  • What is Cloud computing:
    • low-barrier access to computing infrastructure;
    • how to use the cloud to tackle bigger experiments;
    • cloud-based collaboration

Metabolomics Data Deposition in Public Archives

One-day and half-day courses on metabolomics data management and deposition in MetaboLights, including a hands-on exercise and bring-your-own-data (BYOD) sessions are available.
