Belgian Metabolomics Day - September 29 report

On Friday September 29th 2017 Flanders and Wallony Metabolomics groups organized a joint Belgian Metabolomics Day at ILVO Melle/Ghent.

The main purpose of the meeting was to increase the interactions between the various groups active in the field of the metabolomics and to be better aware of each other capabilities and research interests. The presentations focused on providing overviews of the research activities and the facilities.

The meeting was supported by ELIXIR Belgium.
