Multivariate Data Analysis for Omics 

Multivariate data analysis is essential in the process of distilling information from the complex data sets involved in Omics. Huge datasets are reduced to informative plots and charts, enables scientific interpretation and insight. Discover how to build valid and predictive models based on data from in vivo metabolic profiles, with the latest multivariate techniques. The course is composed of lectures, demonstrations and computer exercises in SIMCA, based on real-life Omics datasets.


The objective of this course is to show how to convert data tables and matrixes to robust and reliable models for finding potential biomarkers in complex data structures. The aim is to present easy to understand pictures and graphs for model visualization and interpretation.


The course is intended for researchers involved in Omics and the important analysis of the data generated by single or multiple spectral instruments. No prior knowledge of statistics is assumed but some basic familiarity with the nature of spectroscopy data is required.


• PCA to detect outliers, trends and patterns in Omics data.
• Model construction, interpretation and visualization.
• OPLS-DA for identification of potential biomarkers.
• S-plot (one model) and SUS-plot (two models) for biomarker identification.
