Symposium "Chemometrics in Metabolomics and Proteomics"


Time: 12.30 pm – 4.30 pm
May 2nd, 2011
Place: Lecture room KB3B3, level 3 KBC building, Umeå University

Background: In the fields of proteomics and metabolomics the challenge of analyzing data from diverse platforms arises from its size, diversity and complexity. Understanding what information among all the variability in the data is is in itself a problem that needs evolving solutions.

Several mathematical and statistical methods have been developed for the analysis of chemical and biological data, resulting in different but overlapping disciplines such as bioinformatics, systems biology and chemometrics. Chemometrics in particular may be used during most phases of an experimental setup, from design of experiments, through data normalization and data-specific mathematical calculations, in order to allow one to visualize and summarize important information. This is achieved by using state-of-the-art methods for data exploration, calibration, discrimination and classification of data.

This symposium will focus on chemometrics applications in proteomics and metabolomics.
