Franco - German Symposium on Plant Metabolomics expertise

The WCH-INRA symposium Plant Metabolomics have been take place in Halle/Saale (Germany) on Wednesday 17 and Thursday 18 October 2018. 
During this symposium, scientific goals and methods performed by different groups of the Metabolomics network have been presented and discussed. 4 membres attended to this symposium and have great discussion.

This symposium have been funded by Procope Structurant 2018 Project Creation of a Franco-German Plant Metabolomics Network between the German ScienceCampus Halle - Plant-based Bioeconomy (WCH) and the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA)

MOOC : La métabolomique : enjeux technologiques et scientifiques

Several members of the plateforme Métabolome Bordeaux participated to the creation and realisation of a MOOC (in french only) « La métabolomique : enjeux technologiques et scientifiques »

11th French-speaking Metabolomics and Fluxomics Network Scientific Days (RFMF)

Four members of the Metabolome Facility participated in the 11th French-speaking Metabolomics and Fluxomics Network Scientific Days ( on 23-25 May 2018, a meeting hosted this year by Liège University, in Belgium. The Metabolome Facility contributed to 2 oral presentations and 4 posters in this meeting which had a nice balance between junior (student and post-doc) and senior presentations, with participants from Europe (Belgium, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the United-Kingdom) and overseas (Canada, New-Zealand).


MetaboHUB – 6th scientific days

The members of MetaboHUB met for the 6th annual scientific days on Saint-Raphaël to talk about sciences, metabolomics, fluxomics and databases, from 2 to 4 May 2018.

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)
