Philip Britz-McKibbin is a Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology and Cystic Fibrosis Canada Researcher at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. His research interests in bio-analytical chemistry and metabolomics include the design of novel analytical strategies to quantify and identify metabolites in biological samples, as well as characterization of their interactions with protein. Philip’s laboratory aims to discover new biochemical markers that support early detection and treatment of human diseases relevant to population health and preventative medicine.

New GigaScience series on "Metabolomics: approaches, applications, and integration"
Guest edited by Ute Roessner and Ruth Welti, this cutting-edge series aims to shed light on new advances, applications, and challenges, and to improve data sharing and reproducibility in research utilizing metabolomics.
See the series page at http://www.biomedcentral.com/collections/metabolomics
This rolling/ongoing series has launched with the first two papers. The Viant group at the University of Birmingham has published a Technical Note presenting the first end-to-end metabolomics data analysis workflow that is implemented in the popular Galaxy platform. Galaxy-M (following the naming convention of the proteomics Galaxy-P pipeline) showcases the sharing and reproducibility goals of the series, with all the test data in MetaboLights and GigaDB, and the scripts, Galaxy files and a virtual machine all archived in GigaDB. Also launching the series is a Review article, written by Yozo Okazaki and Kazuki Saito, highlighting integrated metabolomic and phytochemical genomic studies to improve breeding strategies and quality of rice.

4th Workshop on Holistic Analytical
Methods for Systems Biology Studies
We expect again high level presentations and an open, friendly atmosphere. We plan tutorial sessions on protocols, tips and tricks, live demonstration of software, and training session for small number of young participants with hands on PC.
The first day is devoted to fundamentals/methods/protocols, the second day to health/life sciences and the last day to food/plant/nutrition.
Looking forward to seeing you in the historic port city of Thessaloniki.

4th Annual Workshop on Metabolomics
Women, members of under-represented minority groups, and individuals with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
The metabolome, in distinction to the other –Omics, provides a better assessment of the exposure to the chemicals of life – it is truly intergenomic providing information on “metabolites” coming from ourselves or the model we’re using, the unique, non-human/mammalian compounds we consume as part of our food, compounds generated by the microorganisms that are part of “us”, and other compounds that are in the environments we live in. If ever precision medicine is able to deliver what is claimed it will, it has to include the metabolome context in which genes and proteins are operating.
The themes in this fourth year of the workshop are:
