- Agilent GC and LC Teaching and Troubleshooting Videos In the series, Daron Decker, an Agilent GC applications specialist, and Herb Brooks, an Agilent service engineer, discuss common chromatographic problems, causes, and corresponding solutions. There is a lot of information here and it is well worth a look as the problems and solutions are not unique to Agilent. See http://www.chem.agilent.com/en-US/Technical-Support/Instruments-Systems/Gas-Chromatography/Pages/troubleshootingvideos.aspx for the overview and links to each video.
- If you are an LC person then there is also a series of videos for you which are full of hints and tips. Seehttp://www.chem.agilent.com/en-US/Products-Services/Columns-Sample-Preparation/LC-LC-MS-Columns/Pages/lctroubleshootingvideos.aspx
- If you like CE well the bad news is there is no video but there is a nice Agilent CE primer of the method athttp://www.colby.edu/chemistry/CH332/laboratory/Agilent%20CE%20Primer.pdf
- LCGC also came out with a pre ASMS set of video interviews which cover a lot of metabolomics related work. In the latest one at http://www.chromatographyonline.com/thought-leader-series you can see Robert T. Kennedy of the University of Michigan discusses the challenges of metabolomics – coping with data overload and dealing with small amounts of sample. Metabolomics featured all over the biggest mass spec conference in the world, which is great news for the field.
- JoVE there are quite a few metabolomics videos on NMR and Mass spec and a host of others. Have a look athttp://www.jove.com/search?q=metabolomics for the list or go to the main site at http://www.jove.com and just do a key word search for whatever you are after.
Understanding Human Metabolism
- Dr Matthew Lewis of the MRC-NIHR Phenome Centre (based at your editor’s alma mater – Imperial College London) discusses what makes people metabolically different from others and how we might investigate it. I thought the video would be useful for general interest as well as teaching and background info. You can see it at http://www.selectscience.net/SelectScience-TV/Videos/metabonomics–understanding-human-metabolism/?&classID=0&videoID=2294&utm_source=Social-Media&utm_medium=Twitter&utm_cam&sf28853005=1.
- A short scientific movie in the film noir style made by scientists at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Channeling a somewhat Philip Marlowe approach to detective work, the PI in this video is tracking down metabolites—molecules involved in biological mysteries, each with more twists and turns than a Raymond Chandler novel. The video is athttps://www.youtube.com/embed/kErW35pVHQc?feature=plcp&rel=0&showinfo=0&autoplay=1 is neat and as an extra bonus you can try out your inner CSI with some real metabolomics cases which you can read all about athttp://secim.ufl.edu/casefiles/
Statistical Aspects of Data Mining
- A series of nice videos on statistical aspects of data mining data mining by Google. You can see the whole thing athttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRsMEl6PHhM&list=PLA5BD778943E8C6C7.
The Inner Life of a Cell and Other Videos
- Depicts the inner goings on of a cell, which of course generates all the metabolites that we study and you’ll see quite a few of them in the video. It is very accurately depicted (expect for the excess free space which was included so that you can see what is going on). Since that time XVIVO have made a number of other animations from how Mitochodria generate energy (http://www.xvivo.net/animation/powering-the-cell-mitochondria/) to protein packing (http://www.xvivo.net/animation/harvard-protein-packing/). All of these are really fantastic teaching tools for all of us who work/teach biochemistry and related fields such as metabolomics.
