Participation to a Science paper

A successful collaboration between several European and Japanese labs led to a publication in the prestigious American journal Science on the role of plant-specific sphingolipids on the toxicity of microbial toxins.

Adiilah Mamode-Cassim and Sébastien Mongrand get involved in the lipid part, and the purification of this so peculiar plant-specific lipids!

Eudicot plant-specific sphingolipids determine host selectivity of microbial NLP cytolysins.

Two members of the Metabolome Facility participated in the MetaboMeeting ( on 11-12 December 2017, a metabolomics meeting hosted this year by a snow-covered Birmingham University. The Metabolome Facility contributed to 5 posters in this meeting which had a nice balance between student and post-doc presentations alongside the keynotes and plenaries, with participants from all over Europe.

Participation to the chapter "Métabolomics" in INEE CNRS propectives

Members of the Bordeaux Metabolome Facility contributed to the chapter « Metabolomics » in the Prospectives of the Institute of ecology and environment (INEE) of the CNRS.

This special issue of the Cahiers de Prospectives, produced at the end of the INEE colloquium held on 22, 23 and 24 February 2017 in Bordeaux, has just been published [Lien]

NMRProcFlow : a tool developed in Bordeaux is used by the international NMR-based metabolomics community

NMRProcFlow, a webtool developed by Bordeaux Metabolome Facility - MetaboHUB, was used for a tutorial on NMR data processing using the Phenomenal NMR Workflow during the scientific school on “Cloud-Based Metabolomics Data Analysis and Collaboration in Italy” (CloudMET 2017, 11-15 September Pula, Italy), by Dr R. Salek (EBI, Cambridge, UK).

NMRProcFlow has been used by a community of 846 users from the five continents since its launch in July 2016, with more than 3,100 sessions. (Stats)

Nouvelle-Aquitaine Magnetic Resonance Workshop, Pessac

Magnetic Resonance scientists and platform managers from Nouvelle-Aquitaine will meet to present and exchange their competences and set the basis of a future regional network to join both the excellence in science in Nouvelle-Aquitaine and the access to top-class Magnetic Resonance equipments (program)

4 members of our plateform were present:  Annick Moing, Catherine Deborde, Tristan Richard et Josep Valls Fonayet


5th Scientific Days of MetaboHUB

The members of MetaboHUB met for the 5th annual scientific days on the Atlantic coast on the island of Oléron to talk about sciences, metabolomics, fluxomics and databases, from 9 to 12 May 2017 at CAES CNRS Saint Pierre d Oléron.
This year, the focus has been on working with privileged partners such as MedDay, Canceropole GSO, IFB, BiogenOuest (Platform CORSAIRE) and Phenome.

9 membres of the Bordeaux Metabolome Plateform were presents.
