Three complimentary workshops will be offered prior to the meeting on November 11, 2018. The three workshops will be held concurrently.
The space for each workshop is limited. Registration is required for attending the workshop. Since the three workshops will be held concurrently, please register for one of the workshops only.
To ensure workshops meet the learning needs, a pre-workshop survey will be included in the confirmation email to ask the registrant to self identify experience level. The survey results will be captured anonymously. Please watch for the registration confirmation email and complete the survey question.
Workshop 1: MSiReader
MSiReader is an open-source vendor-neutral software to view and perform data analysis of Mass Spectrometry Imaging (MSI) Data. This workshop will inform users on basic functions within the software, time savers when processing data, and advanced functions. MSiReader is community grown software so bring your needs to the Workshop as we will take that input in the final part of the Workshop. For further questions, contact Dr. David Muddiman, email@example.com.
Workshop 2: METASPACE
In the METASPACE workshop, we will explain the challenge and pitfalls of searching for metabolites in imaging mass spectrometry data. We will present how it can be done using METASPACE, an open-source cloud software. We will walk you through the bioinformatics methods behind METASPACE, give a step-by-step tutorial and a demo on how it can be used. We will show how the METASPACE community knowledge base of over 3000 datasets contributed by users can be searched, browsed, and used in your research.
Workshop 3: Imaging Mass Spectrometry of Glycan and Matrix Pathology
This lecture-focused workshop will include discussion on histological stains and imaging mass spectrometry approaches for N-glycans and extracellular matrix proteins.
