Proteomics is the study of the proteome, the set of proteins expressed in an organism. The proteome can change dramatically depending on biological conditions. Proteomics is able to capture detailed snapshots of the proteome using mass spectrometry. The rapid development in technical advances of instrumentation has led to new bioinformatics approaches. For the first time, participants will use the new MS called Orbitrap HF-X. In this course, the focus will be on sample preparation and data analysis.
PhD candidates or Postdocs interested in this course should work on proteomics projects or plan to use proteomics in the near future and have a strong background in nutrition, biochemistry, physiology, molecular biology or a comparable discipline.
