I recently had the pleasure in participating in the 2014 WCMC Statistics for Metabolomics Short Course. The course was hosted by the NIH West Coast Metabolomics Center and focused on statistical and multivariate strategies for metabolomic data analysis. A variety of topics were covered using 8 hands on tutorials which focused on:
- data quality overview
- statistical and power analysis
- principal components analysis (PCA)
- partial least squares (O-/PLS/-DA)
- metabolite enrichment analysis
- biochemical and structural similarity network construction
- network mapping
I am happy to have taught the course using all open source software, including: R, and Cytoscape. The data analysis and visualization were done using Shiny-based apps: DeviumWeb and MetaMapR. Check out some of the slides below or download all the class material and try it out for yourself.
