Workshop mzTab for Metabolomics

We are happy to confirm the MzTab for Metabolomics meeting on March 6th in Tübingen. Our aim is to drive

reporting of metabolomic results further using a standardized,

open, easy accessible and human readable tabular

format. MzTab (version 1.0) already provides basic support

for reporting small molecules that we plan to extend and

harmonize with the more advanced reporting scheme for

proteins and peptides available in MzTab.



University of Tübingen, Sand 1, Room A104.
