About this courseSkip About this course
We will provide a summary of all steps in metabolomics research; from experimental design, sample preparation, analytical procedures, to data analysis. The course also provides case studies of various kinds of research samples to attract students that are not familiar with metabolomics, providing them enough explanation to utilize metabolomics technology for their respective research fields.
Several examples of metabolomics applications will be introduced throughout the lectures. These include examples within food science and technology, metabolic engineering, basic biology, introduction to imaging mass spectrometry, and application in medical science.
No previous knowledge on metabolomics is needed but we recommend that students have an undergraduate-level understanding of Biochemistry, Analytical Chemistry, and Biostatistics, and that they learn about basic principles of multivariable analysis prior to taking this course.

Unfortunately, learners from one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. edX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
