Benelux Metabolomics Community Seminars & Pitches

Frontiers of technologies for systems metabolomics
Starting Thursday March 25 from 15.30 to 17.00 CET the Netherlands Metabolomics Centre will organize every two months an online seminar highlighting metabolomics research in the Benelux. This first seminar will present recent technological advances relevant to systems metabolomics and microbiome research.

We will have two main lectures of 20 minutes, by Herman Spaink of Leiden University on Zebrafish larvae as a high throughput screening system for systems metabolomics and Maik Kok of Leiden University on organoids and organ on a chip technologies for metabolomics. In addition there will be short pitches, by Evita van de Steeg and Joanne Donkers of TNO on in vitro INTESTINE models. The discussion will be chaired by Thomas Hankemeier.

Single cell Metabolomics workshop
The Precision Medicine Task Group of the Metabolomics Society in partnership with other organizations and interest groups is organizing a virtual workshop on Single Cell Metabolomics, to be held on Friday February
26, 2021 16.00 PM - 19.00 PM CET.
Omics at single cell resolution has expanded very rapidly, most obviously in genomics/transcriptomics. However, this approach lacks direct analysis of function, such as cellular metabolism. Most tissues are fundamentally heterogeneous at the cellular level, and heterogeneity is a hallmark of several pathologies

Viral infection in algal blooms – a journey across scales

In this webinar, Prof. Assaf Vardi and Dr Guy Schleyer will present how they utilize the recent advances in the field of chemical ecology (metabolomics and mass spectrometry imaging) combined with single-cell imaging and transcriptomic approaches to track host-pathogen interactions at the microscale.

The glycosphingolipid-based arms race between a bloom-forming alga and its virus

Dr Guy Schleyer is a research assistant in the lab of Prof. Assaf Vardi at the Department of Plant and Environmental sciences, Weizmann Institute, Israel, where he also earned his PhD. In particular, Guy combines metabolomics and lipidomics-based approaches in the lab and the field to study the metabolic landscape of host-virus interactions.
