The amount of data produced within most omics fields, like transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics, is enormous. Together with the complexity of the data this makes handling of omics data not a simple task. This seminar will cover several data analysis related topics that are of importance in the field of metabolomics. Next to different multivariate data analysis approaches, related topics like experimental design and data preprocessing will be discussed. The seminar consists of a theoretical and a practical part. In the theoretical part of the seminar multivariate statistical methods are introduced and illustrated by practical examples from the Analytical Biosciences department. In the practical part all participants will apply the tools from the theoretical part to real metabolomics data using available statistical software.
