The 1st ELIXIR Fluxomics Training School is organized by ELIXIR-GR (FORTH/ICE-HT) in collaboration with ELIXIR-ES (UB) in the context of the ELIXIR Metabolomics Community-lead Implementation Study “Standardizing the fluxomics workflows”. This 5-day course, will take place in virtual mode on October 4-8 2021 from 9:00 to 17:00 Central European Time (CET) and will provide an introduction to the field of fluxomics and the experimental and computational methods used to estimate and predict metabolic fluxes. The course is addressed mainly to graduate students and junior post-docs, of either experimental or computational background. Learning outcomes include familiarity with the basic concepts, experimental techniques, data deposition standards and computational methods and software tools in fluxomics. The course includes hands-on experience in computational methods and software tools and mini team projects that will help the students apply the taught concepts.
The course will involve up to 30 students and the selection will be made based on an application package submitted by August 27 2021. Sponsored by ELIXIR, the course is free of charge for personnel of academic/research/non-profit institutions in ELIXIR Nodes. Registration fees apply for the rest. ECTS credits may be granted to graduate students of European Institutions upon request after approval of the involved Graduate Programs. More information on the school can be found at the school website.
