Optional Pre-Symposium Workshops

8:15-8:45 am Registration for Workshop Participants
8:45 am-12:00 pm Parallel Workshops:

  • Introduction to Native Mass Spectrometry. Resource for Native MS-Guided Structural Biology presents an introduction to native MS methods used to help solve structural biology questions. Workshop topics include preparation/online separations, spray and instrument conditions, ion mobility, activation methods, and case studies. Presented by Resource for Native MS-Guided Structural Biology personnel Florian Busch, Dalton Snyder, Sophie Harvey, Zac VanAernum, Alyssa Stiving and Vicki Wysocki.
  • Introduction to Metabolomics. This “primer” workshop will highlight fundamental points of metabolomics data collection and interpretation, including LC -MS and NMR data collection, deconvolution, statistical analysis, and unknown identification. Best suited for those new to the field and for collaborators having metabolomics analyses performed. Presented by Rachel Kopec, Jessica Cooperstone, Djawed Bennouna, Ewy Mathé, and Emmanuel Hatzakis.    View schedule
